Here at Askews Legal LLP our Solicitors have experience dealing with Corporate Manslaughter cases which inevitably end up being dealt with at a Crown Court. The aim of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 (CM & CH Act 2007) is to improve the protection of employees and the public from management failures by holding companies responsible and allowing companies to be punished rather than individuals. It is now much easier to prosecute companies when a senior management failure has resulted in death.
In owner managed businesses, an individual could be at risk of prosecution if it can be determined that they had an active part in the day to day running of the business. Our aim is to vigorously defend companies accused of any such wrongdoing.
If you have been accused of corporate manslaughter, it is essential that you instruct an experienced firm of solicitors. Call our team on 02476 231000 and we will assign an experienced Solicitor and help assemble the appropriate defence to proactively defend your case. In our experience, seeking advice at an early stage of an investigation can dramatically reduce the chances of a prosecution being brought against you.
