Fraud & Regulatory


Here at Adkirk Law we have a specialist team dedicated to Trading Standards Investigations and Prosecutions. Unlike many solicitors we operate on both sides of these cases by prosecuting and defending Trading Standards cases. This gives us exclusive insight as to how the best cases should be run whether that is prosecuting or defending. We prosecute on behalf of Cheshire West and Chester Council who are the lead authority for the North West Trading Standards area. We also defend businesses and individuals from all other areas across the country. We can advise at investigation stage; during interviews under caution; proceedings before the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts together with advice on various notices served on businesses regarding products.

We always take a pro-active approach to defending and every possible avenue to avoid prosecution will be considered whether it is negotiation, representations or Judicial Review of decisions made. We understand what the investigation team are looking for and will take every step to achieve a good outcome for our clients.
