"The regulatory world is constantly evolving and touches upon every aspect of the world around us. What makes regulatory law so interesting is that it affects every single one of us. The stakes for non-compliance are too high for organisations, as well as individuals, to ignore their obligations to keep employees and members of the public safe. It is our role to ensure that our clients are fully protected in the wake of an accident or an alleged breach, to respond quickly and efficiently, and devise a strategy to respond to a potential prosecution whilst minimising any commercial and reputational damage as much as possible.
"I enjoy meeting clients and gaining an understanding of their particular organisation and the processes/procedures in place. Such an understanding is crucial to being able to create an effective strategy for the case going forward, as well as delivering compliance advice which is relevant and useful to their business. The opportunities to communicate with a wide range of individuals who make up an organisation, and the seriousness of the sanctions that our clients can face following non-compliance makes being a regulatory lawyer so rewarding."
