Trading Standards Investigations & Prosecutions

There are a huge amount of consumer protection and unfair trading offences which can be investigated by the Local Authority Trading Standards office, and can carry unlimited fines and lengthy periods of imprisonment.

If you, or your business, is being investigated by Trading Standards, it is vital that you obtain expert legal advice from the outset to best protect you and your business in respect of this heavily regulated and highly complex area of law.

Areas regulated by Trading Standards include trade descriptions, advertising, age restrictions, counterfeit goods, food safety, product safety, consumer contracts, and conditions of trade.

Our solicitors can not only advise and protect you in respect of Trading Standards investigations, but can also provide bespoke training for your employees to help your business to avoid falling foul of this complicated area of law.

If you are being investigated by Trading Standards, or would like to discuss how to protect your business from a potential future investigation, please contact our regulatory experts now to arrange a reduced fee initial meeting to discuss your options.
