Health and safety

Within: Health and safety

Blake Morgan LLP advises a wide range of businesses, from multi-site UK and European companies to small, owner-managed entities, along with a number of legal expenses insurers, on the full gamut of health and safety issues. The firm undertakes a significant amount of non-contentious work alongside its substantial workload of civil and criminal litigation, and also provides transactional support concerning future liability for occupational illnesses, such as asbestos-related diseases. Recent highlights include acting for a window installer company in a case regarding an injury sustained by a fitter as a result of a faulty risk assessment, where the HSE eventually decided not to prosecute. Claire Rawle leads the health, safety and environmental team, handling primarily contentious matters across the public and private sectors. John Mitchell is the other name to note.
