Regulatory compliance refers to any specific laws, standards, policies or regulations that apply to your business or organisation. You must be compliant with a variety of different regulations in order to operate legally in the UK, whatever type of organisation or business you run.
Some regulatory law is governed by local authorities, some by national government and some by industry regulatory bodies. A failure to comply with all of the necessary regulations can mean enforcements such as fines, limits being put on business activity and even prison sentences in some cases.
Regulatory compliance solicitors assist businesses and organisations with their policies, procedures and any other legal requirements to help ensure they remain compliant with all of the relevant regulations for their kind of activity.
This could be anything from fire safety to alcohol licensing, depending on the nature of what you do and the sector you operate in.
Regulatory enforcement solicitors support businesses and organisations that are subject to enforcement action as a result of a substantiated breach in regulatory law. An investigation and any resulting enforcement action could have potentially devastating consequences for businesses.
Not only might the business or organisation itself be fined or company assets frozen, you can also potentially be prosecuted for significant breaches in regulatory compliance. Regulatory enforcement solicitors can support you by offering expert legal advice to help reduce the damage and disruption, both professionally and personally.
