Health and Safety Solicitors

MJP solicitors have been involved in advising major PLC's in connection with Health and Safety legislation, and the liability of directors in corporate manslaughter cases, as well as representing in defence prosecution brought by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The penalties for infringement in Health ands Safety cases are severe both in financial terms and in respect the terms of imprisonment that may be imposed.
