Regulatory Offences

Arrange a meeting

Regulatory offences can include offences committed by a company director, prosecution for failing to register a House in Multiple Occupation, environmental breaches and health and safety breaches by employers or businesses. They can include cases brought by a professional body or local authority, such as Trading Standards, the Health and Safety Executive and the Environment Agency.

Regulatory Matters

If you have been accused of, or are connected with, a criminal offence regarding a regulatory matter, instructing an expert lawyer is the first step in successfully defending your case. Prosecutions can be made against individuals or businesses, and require an expert knowledge of the regulatory issue in question. Our team of criminal defence lawyers have many year’s experience in defending individuals in cases involving regulatory offences.


We understand that not only your personal life, but also your professional reputation and livelihood may be impacted by false allegations. As well as putting together the strongest possible case for you, we will support you to minimise the risk to yours and your business’ reputation.

If you need help from an expert and would like to talk to someone in confidence about your options, contact Gerard Maye or call 01273 916000.

  • I have used Gerard Maye Legal on a number of occasions over the past 10 years and cannot thank them enough for the impeccable professional service that they provide every time. Without the support of Gerard Maye and his fantastic team, my family and I would have struggled to cope with what has been an immensely stressful time and emotional time. I would never risk my future by going anywhere else for legal representation.
