Farleys Solicitors have extensive experience of defending clients accused of corporate manslaughter under the terms of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007.
This legislation aims to make organisations liable for deaths which result from perceived management failures or a gross breach in duty of care.
If you have been accused of corporate manslaughter it is important that you contact an experienced serious crime solicitor as soon as possible, in order to allow them sufficient time to prepare a strong case for your defence.
Corporate Manslaughter Prosecutions
Although the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 aims to punish the organisation and not individuals, it is feasible that an individual could be liable for prosecution; for instance, if they are the sole director of the accused firm.
If you have been accused of indirectly causing the death of another individual as a result of gross negligence or violation of health and safety protocols, the corporate manslaughter solicitors at Farleys can:
- Provide in-depth legal advice on the implications of your situation
- Advise and attend interviews
- Represent you during the prosecution
We will use all the resources at our disposal to ensure our solicitors construct a strong case for your defence.
Our Fraud and Business Crime team regularly win cases on behalf of clients accused of a range of serious crimes. We can advise and attend interviews, our solicitors are recognised specialists on the LSC’s (Legal Services Commission) Specialist Fraud Panel, and the range of resources available to our team allows them to assemble effective defence strategies for those accused of corporate manslaughter.
