Criminal Regulatory

Chris has extensive experience in the regulatory field, across a number of areas. He has prosecuted various large allegations investigated by the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency in respect of the unlawful sale of unlicensed medicines and prohibited drugs at a national and international level, and has provided advice to the Department of Health (and now the CPS) in this regard.

Chris recently advised in the successful prosecution of a company for health and safety breaches.

He represented a major international advertising company against a number of alleged breaches of planning regulations spanning nearly ten years. In consequence the company avoided a large confiscation order and suffered a minimal financial penalty.

He also provided pre-charge advice in respect of further investigations which have led to no prosecution being pursued, and has advised and represented the same company before the Planning Inspectorate.

His expertise in confiscation led to him being instructed in the successful application to increase the recoverable amount of the confiscation order in the leading case on confiscation in regulatory proceedings (R v Del Basso).

Chris’ regulatory experience extends beyond the criminal arena. For example, he advised and represented the Football Association in an appeal by a club against a deduction of points which led to its relegation from the league, and another appeal by a Premier League club against sanctions in relation to crowd control.

He also provides representation for those whose cases involve parallel coronial proceedings.

Chris represented the senior employees of a company giving evidence in the Grenfell Tower public inquiry, and an ex-senior employee of the Post Office in the Post Office Horizon IT public inquiry.
