We'd like to hear from you:
Our team draws together experience from numerous areas of expertise to help you navigate the minefield of UK and European regulators and consumer law. We’re also no strangers to the ASA – we’ve helped clients defend ASA challenges for many years.
If your business deals with consumers, we can provide advice and guidance on your consumer contracts, product liability and consumer protection issues, and on the myriad rules relating to the advertising, pricing, labelling and packaging of consumer goods.
Our regulatory work includes advising clients on how to comply with regulations from the Advertising Standards Authority, Ofcom, the Press Complaints Commission, the Information Commissioner's Office, the Food Standards Agency, the Office of Fair Trading, and Trading Standards, and on what to do if you (or your competitors) break the rules.
Our regulatory work includes advising clients in complying with their regulatory obligations across a wide variety of sectors –alcohol, cosmetics, gambling, food and drink to name but a few. We help make and defend complaints to the many regulators who have control over advertisers, including the ASA, Ofcom, OFT, ICSTIS, ICC, PCC, FSC, FSA, Trading Standards and sports regulators.
If you’re in a sector where comparative advertising is rife, our lawyers have a wealth of experience in helping clients to navigate the legal risks and challenge their competitors. And if you find yourself on the wrong side of the ASA or another regulatory body, we’re also experienced in challenging their decisions through their own internal appeal systems and ultimately, judicial review.
