Regulatory Crime



Don’t Settle For Less

IM Solicitors – Regulatory Defence

IM Solicitors are recognised experts in helping businesses and individuals deal with complex investigations and proceedings brought by regulatory bodies.

Regulatory frameworks have become a vital and unavoidable part of all business operations, whatever the sector. All regulations impose obligations and have a direct impact upon both companies and individuals alike. Breach of these regulations can potentially lead to the loss of your liberty, hefty fines and can cause irreparable damage to your personal and professional reputation.

What can we help you with?

Our specialist regulatory crime team undertakes a range of work covering compliance, investigations, adjudication, enforcement, and prosecutions, which predominantly fall within the following categories:

 Fraud, bribery, and corruption
 Corporate governance
 Data protection
 Health and safety
 Consumer protection and trading standards
 Professional discipline and misconduct
 Directors’ duties, disqualification, and criminal liability, including fraudulent trading

Within these categories of expertise, specifically, we can help if you are required to:  Attend an interview
 Apply for bail
 Challenge a restraint order or search warrant
 Negotiate with the authorities
 Prepare for trial
 Prepare your mitigation for a sentence hearing

Choose a specialist

Our dedicated regulatory crime team consists solely of lawyers experienced in this complex area of law, each with the ability to act for individuals, organisations, and corporates. Whoever the client, our role is to help you respond to regulatory investigations and interventions quickly and effectively, where the reputation or the future success of a business or individual is at stake.

We aim to provide seamless advice and ensure your legal problems are considered from every angle.

Our regulatory lawyers are expert in understanding the process, identifying the key issues involved and preparing a watertight case, including instructing expert witnesses if required.

We can also represent you at court and at appeal, and regularly instruct and work with top barristers
in the field.

Build trust in our services

Our lawyers regularly work with clients for whom this is an unfamiliar scenario, which feels daunting and potentially life-changing. It is vital to seek specialist legal advice from the moment you become aware of an alleged breach or investigation.

As well as being specialists in regulatory crime, rest assured, we will listen to you and quickly build up an accurate picture of the context, circumstances, and dependencies of the case. Based on this, we will work with you to explain the process, and guide you through it, to help you achieve the best
possible outcome.

What are the costs?

We can assist with all types of regulatory crime. It is unlikely you will receive Legal Aid funding, but we will discuss your funding options at the start and give you a clear estimate of likely costs.

Unlike large ‘production line’ criminal law firms, we offer a bespoke service tailored to your case and your needs. By using Ibrahim Mustafa (IM) LLP you can rest assured that we will represent you robustly, always looking out for your best interests.
