Regulatory Law Services

Prosecutions and investigations by regulatory bodies that deal with the environment, health and safety, and land use are becoming much more common and difficult for businesses to deal with. These can have the most serious of consequences both for a business and its Directors and employees. The burden of regulation is increasing all the time and we can help and advise you on how to deal with such prosecutions and investigations.

Fraser Dawbarns offers a range of services to our clients, regularly helping them to resolve a wide range of regulatory law issues. If you are faced with a regulatory problem contact one of our specialist team to discuss how we might help you.


We have extensive experience and expertise in the licensing of public houses, halls and member clubs, premises and personal licences, and the regulation of the licensed trade generally. We have appeared over a considerable number of years in front of licensing panels and committees to represent applicants, objectors and statutory bodies such as the police and fire service.

We also have expertise in the new law of gambling in so far as it concerns premises to be used for such activity, as well as dealing with traditional forms of bookmaking and betting. Whatever your query, our regulatory law team will guide you through the licencing process with practical and cost-effective advice. If you would like help with any licensing issue why not contact us today to discuss how we might help.

Health & Safety Law

Staff and employees have a right to work in places where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled. Health and safety is about stopping your staff getting hurt at work or ill through work. If problems do arise, an employee or business boss can face fines or even imprisonment if they are found at fault in a prosecution under Health and Safety Legislation.

Our highly experienced litigation lawyers are skilled in helping and advising clients who are worried about a potential issue or who may be facing investigation or a prosecution. If you are concerned about a Health and Safety problem, then contact one of our litigation team to discuss how we can help.

Environmental Regulatory Law

As climate change has become more of a political issue, so environmental regulatory law has become further reaching and more complex. It is vital for business to keep up to date with the changes to environmental regulations to reduce any potential risk of non-compliance and any associated penalties. Even if your business is not an obvious target for environmental legislation, it is still important to keep abreast of the issues to avoid any enforcement action.

Whether you would like to have a discussion with one of our regulatory law specialists to ensure your business is compliant or whether you are facing investigation or prosecution by the Environment Agency, Fraser Dawbarns can help. By working closely with your business, we can identify any issues you are facing and help you to protect yourself and your business, ensuring that any problems have the minimum impact of the smooth running of your business. Contact Fraser Dawbarns for a discussion about environmental regulatory law and to see how we can help you.
