Regulatory

Since joining Chambers as a tenant, Will has been instructed in a number of regulatory trials and hearings in both the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts. He has also appeared in related Proceeds of Crime hearings.  Will has recently been instructed to prosecute a large scale case of the unauthorised use of trade marks in a counterfeit tobacco case.

Will has recently been instructed in cases involving:

  • Offences concerning Houses in Multiple Occupation (‘HMO’s)
  • Animal Welfare offences
  • Trade marks Offences
  • Prosecutions by the Food Standards Agency.

Will undertook a regulatory second-six pupillage under the guidance of the then Head of Chambers, Nicholas Cole. He was required to draft advices and case summaries in a wide range of Environmental and Animal Health prosecutions. During his pupillage, Will also spent a month with Kevin Saunders and gained experience in a range of regulatory matters in the Crown Court.

Will has also been instructed on a number of occasions to act in mock trials and conferences in order to train new Health & Safety Executive inspectors in the preparation and execution of their prosecutions surrounding the Work at Height Regulations.

Further, Will has experience of conducting both Education Act and Department for Business, Innovation and Skills prosecutions. William has developed a busy practice in both the Magistrates’ and Crown Courts, and is keen to develop his regulatory practice.
