Businesses involved in the manufacture and supply of goods and services will need to heed trading standards regulations. Contravention can lead to significant penalties. Our team is experienced in compliance, enforcement and defence to prosecutions; as well as occasionally being instructed to prosecute for Trading Standards.

We represent a number of large regional and national companies in relation to the varying aspects of regulation by trading standards and pride ourselves on the breadth of our knowledge in this area.

Recent Trading Standards cases include:

  • representing a food producer who faced investigation by Trading Standards for animal welfare offences
  • defending a national mobility company and individual directors in multiple matters prosecuted under the CPR and Regulations relating to Cancellation Rights
  • representing an international animal feed company in respect of the initial stages of an investigation.
