Regulatory

The Regulatory Group at No5 is a national leader. We pride ourselves on not only providing the highest standard of advocacy but also the depth of support that lies behind that.

Members are well equipped to provide advice and assistance in any form needed, from detailed formal advice, to conferences with expert witnesses, to urgent and short oral assistance.

Expertise

We recognise that Regulatory work covers a broad spectrum, and we can offer real expertise in the following areas, whether defending, prosecuting or advising short of enforcement action;

  • Health and Safety work at all levels, including the most complex cases, plus inquests and inquiries
  • Misconduct and Compliance
  • Insurance-related corporate and individual criminal work
  • Licensing, both personal and for premises
  • Environmental enforcement
  • Local authority work covering health and safety, food safety, licensing, fly-tipping, benefits, tax, housing, and anti-social behaviour
  • Healthcare, covering Trusts, Care Environments, individual practitioners, and all CQC related matters
  • Sports Law, both individual and corporate

Many of our barristers can be contacted and instructed through public access.
