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

Recommendations

No5 Barristers Chambers’ regulatory practice has ‘excellent strength in depth’; health and safety law is a core speciality.
Legal 500 2019

No5 Barristers’ Chambers has ‘strength at all levels’ in its regulatory practice, and particular expertise in health and safety law, where Bernard Thorogood recently acted for the prosecution in R (HSE) v Merlin Attractions Operations, regarding the highly publicised rollercoaster collision at Alton Towers. Adrian Keeling QC is noted for representing the police in serious misconduct cases.
Legal 500 2017

No5 Chambers is well known for regulatory work and health and safety prosecutions. Adrian Keeling QC regularly acts for the police in inquests and inquiries into police misconduct and fatalities of citizens. Keeling and other members also defend police officers in regulatory proceedings.
