As business defence solicitors we take a forensic approach to our work. We always attempt to establish how the trading standards claims it can prove the various elements of each given offence. Too frequently our Trading standards solicitors come across prosecuting bodies who simply jump to conclusions and ask the court or the tribunal to accept their word on matters for which they have no supporting evidence. As Trading Standards Defence solicitors it is our job to make sure that these sorts of flimsy and speculative prosecutions fail at the earliest opportunity.
Nevertheless, where it is apparent that clients face insurmountable trading standards difficulties, we are happy to attempt to reach accommodations or compromises with the prosecutor or real bodies concerned.  It is often possible to resolve matters to the satisfaction of our clients by entering into discussions and negotiations with a view to avoiding court proceedings, making appropriate restitutions or implementing changes to business practice.

TRADING STANDARDS LAW

We take a forensic approach to each case. We start by attempting to establish how the Trading Standards Department claim to be able to prove each element of each offence. In our experience many Trading Standards Investigators simply jump to conclusions without the evidence to back them up. As defence solicitors it is our job to make sure that these sorts of flimsy and speculative prosecutions fail at the earliest opportunity.

It goes without saying, that some people will face insurmountable difficulties; where this happens we are happy to attempt to reach accommodations or compromises with the prosecutor or the departments concerned.  It is often possible to resolve matters to the satisfaction of our clients by entering into discussions and negotiations with a view to avoiding court proceedings by making appropriate restitutions or implementing changes to business practice.
