The regulatory team at St Pauls is recognised for having some of the country’s leading trading standards lawyers. Our regulatory barristers have many years of experience in conducting trading standard cases at all levels, dealing with trading standard law issues, including unfair commercial practices, product safety, counterfeit goods and unauthorised use of trademarks.
The evolving legislation surrounded trading standards law is designed to protect the rights of the consumer. Due to the complex nature of trading standards legislation, businesses and individuals may find themselves unintentionally facing prosecution and disciplinary measures. Trading standards lawyers at St Pauls specialise in providing swift and clear advice, often at very early stages of the investigation, as well as effective representation at court.
We frequently handle complex and lengthy cases involving individuals or businesses. Our barristers have conducted major trials involving Trading Standards Law. Notable cases in which St Pauls barristers have been involved include:
Chambers have seen cooperation between Trading Standards Departments and the other regulators, especially where there are investigations in relation to offences under the Consumer Protection from Trading Regulations, 2007. As regulators seem to have been given the ‘green light’ to impose huge fines on various types of a company who are involved in offences against consumers, it seems that this type of litigation is bound to grow over the next few years.
The area of trading standards law and procedure is complex, and we would encourage seeking assistance at an early stage to ensure the best possible advice can be obtained for you or your company.
