Health & Safety & Environmental Defence

Health and Safety and Environmental legislation are well known as complex and constantly developing areas of law. Whilst it can cover a range of different offences, we understand that any investigation is serious for you and your business.

Investigation by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE), Local Authority, Environment Agency and even the police can have significant consequences for your business and the key staff within it. Penalties on conviction can include fines and even imprisonment, as well as the associated damage to the reputation of the business.

Our Team

Fosters has a number of Solicitors with significant experience in dealing with Health & Safety Executive investigations and prosecutions. Uniquely in Norfolk, we are a "Top Tier" (Legal 500) Defence team and, unlike most firms, we are a full service law firm something we consider as crucial to helping clients prepare their defence, because it allows us to access the knowledge and expertise of our colleagues in other departments for your benefit.


From the outset, excellent legal advice from Fosters can shape the way in which any case against you develops. You may be required to provide information by one of the Agencies mentioned above, or be required to attend an interview under Caution in accordance with the Police and Criminal Evidence Act 1984. Our team can assist, and attend with you, protecting your interests.


If you are summoned to Court, and a prosecution cannot be avoided, then Fosters will help you prepare your defence case fully. From ensuring your defence is presented properly, taking stock of the evidence against you, to simply just helping you to show that an error has been put right, our team of Solicitors will offer you the best advice possible.
