Daniel Oscroft Regulatory & Licensing
Daniel Oscroft regularly accepts instructions from local authorities, licensees, enforcement bodies and the police. He will often accept instructions at late notice and advise on the most cost effective course of action. He appears regularly before committees and in the magistrates’ courts for all sides and believes the breadth of his instructions helps him offer the best service to any party needing advice or representation. He has advised local residents on numerous occasions and is happy to help them either preparing their submissions to committees or representing them at the full hearings or appeals.
He comes from a criminal law background and has used the specialist skills in advocacy that this experience has given him to conduct hearings effectively in a wide range of cases.
Daniel is always happy to advise on Judicial Review or Case Stating Appeals, and will happily guide those instructing him through the process.
He has recently advised Local Authorities on how to deal with problem premises and the best route to bringing them under control. This involved liaising with the police and other responsible authorities in using both the review process as well as bringing criminal proceedings against premises that were the focus of major criminal activity.
Taxi licensing is also a significant part of his practice; he frequently accepts instructions from Local Authorities, taxi drivers and operator’s license holders. He has lectured on the recent changes in the law and advised Local Authorities on the impact of new case law in the area.
