What can Duncan do for you?

Duncan specialises in regulatory enforcement action. He leads the regulatory team which supports clients through a wide variety of public law disputes, regulatory investigations and enforcement action. His practice areas include: corporate manslaughter and Health and Safety prosecutions; Care Quality Commission enforcement action, Inquests and Article 2 Inquiries; Environment Agency prosecutions, social housing regulation and Charity Commission action.

Supporting your ambitions

Duncan uses his knowledge and expertise to protect clients by ensuring that investigations and inquiries are properly managed, in context with the primary aim of helping clients avoid enforcement action.

Where enforcement action can't be avoided, Duncan helps clients navigate their way through complex legal processes. In one recent case Duncan represented an aluminium recycling business through a detailed investigation and subsequent prosecution following the death of a building contractor on site. Calling on his experience, Duncan was able to help the client present effective mitigation and secure the ongoing viability of the business, safeguarding many local jobs.

What do others say?

Duncan recently represented a Care Home Group facing a raft of enforcement actions. Having successfully secured the lifting of an unlawful embargo, the Chief Executive thanked Duncan "... for achieving more for this organisation in two months than anyone else has achieved in two years."

What else should you know?

Duncan uses his extensive regulatory and health sector knowledge to support the East Anglia Air Ambulance where he is Vice Chair.

When away from work Duncan is a keen petrol head and can be found trying to keep his classic car on the road.
