Regulatory Law services


Protecting your business and its reputation

In the modern market place businesses have to cope with the increasing demand by government agencies to have tailor made policies to cover EU and UK regulations on matters ranging from data protection and anti-bribery policies, through to comprehensive measures ensuring environmental and health & safety compliance.

In a world where civil and criminal enforcement results in financial penalties frequently running into tens of thousands of pounds, before the Court considers awarding legal costs it is not surprising that businesses today see regulatory failings as a major threat to the viability of their business and reputation.


At Fishers we have specialist knowledge of the law and advocacy, and experience in a wide range of regulatory matters. We can manage your operational risk by providing cost effective, proactive advice, support and training. This way we can help you to achieve regulatory compliance and minimise the risk of any regulatory investigations or prosecutions which can be highly disruptive to your business, costing you time, money and damage to your reputation.


In the event that proceedings are brought against you or your business we will guide you through the process, investigate the alleged breach and represent your business. We have a strong track record of achieving positive outcomes for our clients during regulatory prosecutions under even the most challenging conditions.
