A trading standards prosecution can have devastating financial and reputational costs for you and your business
If you or your business are being investigated for trading standards allegations then it is essential that you receive specialist legal advice. A trading standards prosecution can be brought by a number of different Regulatory Bodies, against individuals and businesses. Potential offences that can be investigated include:
You or your business could become subject to an investigation by way of a complaint made by a consumer. Alternatively it may be as a result of a test purchase made by a Trading Standards official.
We are happy to discuss your case with you over the telephone. Call us today on 01270 613639 or contact us using this form and we will call you back to discuss your case.
If you receive a letter from Trading Standards raising a concern about your business then it is important that you receive legal advice before responding. At Poole Alcock we can assist you in your response and make written representations on your behalf. Written representations can mean the difference between an investigation against you and your business leading to a prosecution or being concluded with no further action. Sometimes it may be appropriate to negotiate formal or informal agreements about future conduct of the business. This can prevent the investigation continuing and prosecutions being pursued.
If you have received an invitation to attend for an interview under caution, then it is essential that you receive legal advice and representation for that interview. Depending on the circumstances of the interview, legal aid may be available to you.
When cases progress to prosecution, the sanctions available to the Court include a financial penalty, and in some circumstances a custodial sentence.
Poole Alcock has expert defence solicitors based in offices across Cheshire, including Crewe, Alsager, Congleton, Sandbach, Nantwich and Wilmslow.
