We are specialists in fire safety law, from prohibition and enforcement notices through to dealing with prosecutions. We can assist during investigations, particularly if you are faced with an interview under caution.
Fire safety law has undergone a major change with the advent of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order, which now has prominence as far as legal requirements are concerned. We are one of a small number of firms that have an expert knowledge of this area of law, backed up with technical know-how as one of our lawyers served for over 11 years in the fire service.
Inspectors are endowed with a number of powers, including the ability to serve alterations, enforcement or prohibition notices. In some circumstances, they are able to close a premises immediately if there is a serious risk. With these implications, it is useful to have a lawyer on your side who understands how both the law and fire service operates.
We also work with a number of fire safety experts to provide a package of both technical and legal fire safety knowledge. If you need to speak to one of our solicitors, please use the online ‘chat’ system, send us an e-mail or call us.
