If you or your business are facing prosecution or enforcement by a regulatory body, our regulatory lawyers can help. We provide a complete regulatory defence service to you and your business against enforcement by the numerous Jersey agencies with powers to prosecute (such as Office of the Information Commissioner (Data Protection & GDPR), Jersey Health and Safety Inspectorate, Population, Planning & Building Control and Licensing departments).

While regulatory offences are generally viewed as less serious than criminal offences, it is important to realise that it is much easier to be convicted of a regulatory offence than a criminal offence and the consequences of a conviction can be surprisingly severe. The penalties for regulatory offence convictions can include large fines, probation orders and, in some cases a term of imprisonment
