Regulatory, Disciplinary, Environmental, Health & Safety Barristers
Trinity Chambers' Regulatory group is made up of highly experienced tribunal advocates who adopt a forensic approach to the issues having frequently acted on behalf of both individuals and public bodies in such proceedings. The group also benefits from including Queens’ Counsel - Toby Hedworth Q.C. and Caroline Goodwin Q.C.
The Regulatory barristers have defended and prosecuted hearings involving HM Revenue and Customs, Trading Standards, Health and Safety Executive, UK Border Agency, Civil Aviation Authority, food safety, marine safety, environmental protection and data protection. The Regulatory barristers deal with private prosecutions/injunctions for a wide range of commercial organisations, including retailers, regulatory bodies and charities.
Members of the Regulatory team also deal with civil fraud, including mortgage fraud and other aspects of white collar financial crime.
Given the breadth of experienced practitioners within Trinity, expertise is also available to deal with Judicial Review and other public law matters arising from Regulatory proceedings.
Whilst the group is geographically focused in Newcastle, Teesside, Leeds and Durham, barristers from the group are regularly instructed by solicitor clients from across the North Eastern and Northern Circuits, and beyond.
Members of the Regulatory group frequently provide online and in person training events to its solicitor clients as well as in-house legal teams, Local Authorities, and private businesses.
Members of the Regulatory group are consistently mentioned in the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners directories.
