About us

We are a UK law firm that specialises in food safety, health and safety at work (sometimes called occupational safety) and fire safety.

Most work is done in-house, but we also utilise a network of lawyers and professionals who can assist in specific specialist areas.   In matters that go to the higher courts, we work with a selected number of barristers who have experience in this niche area of law.

We are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority – No 643082 – in our company name, which is Licensing & Safety Lawyers Ltd.  We are also registered with the Information Commissioners Office, No : ZA069685. Our director is Jon Payne, who was one of the first, if not the first, practising lawyer to be registered on the Health & Safety Executive’s Occupational Health Consultants Register.  He holds an Honours Degree in Environmental Health and a Diploma in Health and Safety.  In addition to having spent over 11 years in the Fire Service, he is qualified both as a barrister and a solicitor.
