Criminal Defence and Advice for Businesses

Egan Meyer provides advice, support, and representation to businesses in relation to potential actions taken by UK law enforcement and regulatory agencies. Most often this follows an accident at work or a pollution event, but we are also engaged by clients in order to head-off sanction for non-compliance with health and safety and/or environmental legislation and regulations.

Egan Meyer does not undertake any commercial work; it is unique in that its lawyers have a huge amount of experience in health and safety and environmental protection enforcement but has no commercial arm which vies for an introduction to a potential new client. That is why other lawyers feel confident in recommending them; they know Egan Meyer has the experience and knowledge that will see the client right, but they also know that by referring the client to Egan Meyer they are not risking their future relationship.
