187 Fleet Street offers the highest-quality, expert Trading Standards and Regulatory law barristers to Local Authorities and individual clients.
This includes, but is not limited to, offences under the Fraud Act 2006, The Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (and associated Regulations), The Trade Marks Act 1994 and The Food Safety Act 1990.
Chambers are leaders in providing advice and advocacy in cases which demand expertise outside of the traditional remit of the criminal law.
Uniquely, 187 Fleet Street's expertise goes beyond the criminal jurisdiction and our barristers are regularly instructed to appear before the civil courts for applications for orders under the Enterprise Act 2002.
In addition to the traditional services offered, some of our Counsel come with a mix of experience particularly relevant to Local Authority work. Direct experience of working in Local (and National) Government and solid backgrounds in investigation and policy allow identification and development of a wide range of solutions to legal problems. Early involvement during, or before, the investigation phase means tighter control of costs at all stages.
We frequently handle legally complex, document-heavy cases involving individuals and Local Authorities. Our barristers have conducted major trials involving Trading Standards Law and as a result, we are often first-choice amongst solicitors and professional advisors.
Our barristers are adept at providing cost-effective and robust legal solutions in Trading Standards investigations and litigation. For Trading Standards Law, 187 Fleet Street are at the cutting edge of the profession. Members of chambers also have extensive experience in dealing with Confiscation Orders under the Proceeds of Crime Act 2002 from advice at the outset of a case to the conclusion of confiscation proceedings.
187 Fleet Street therefore provide a complete service from the initial investigation, through to trial and on to confiscation if appropriate.
To instruct a barrister or discuss your case further, Chambers has a dedicated clerking team led by our Senior Clerk, John Pyne and our Deputy Senior Clerk, Michael Johnson.
