Practices

Nathan specialises in the area of Regulatory Law and is an expert in health and safety. He is qualified as a Solicitor Advocate so can appear before all of the criminal courts including the Crown Court.

Nathan advises both corporate and individual clients with regards to investigations and prosecutions in relation to breaches of health & safety law, environmental, fire safety and food safety. In addition he has experience in relation to other regulatory matters including Transport Law, Environmental Law, Liquor Licensing, Coroner’s Inquests and Public Enquiries.

In addition Nathan undertakes a substantial number of prosecutions on behalf of the Health & Safety Executive that will often involve cases where a fatality occurred. A recent case of Nathan’s R (HSE) v Watling Tyres was appealed to the Court of Appeal and the fine of £1million was upheld.

Due to his experience Nathan will assist clients during an investigation including representation at interviews, Coroner’s Inquests and Notice Appeals. Should a prosecution take place Nathan is used to representing clients in the Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court as well as instructing barristers as needed due to his close working relationship with the barristers that specialise in these areas.

Before Nathan specialised in Regulatory Law he spent many years representing clients, often in their role as company directors, in relation to Serious Crime and Serious Fraud cases. The cases involved prosecutions by Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs, the Serious Fraud Office and the National Crime Agency that alleged VAT fraud, drug importation, money laundering and murder. Nathan was able to secure acquittals in a number of cases including R v M (alleged £5million VAT Fraud) and R v Q & others (alleged £3million pension fraud.) Nathan continues to undertake a limited amount of work in this area.
