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 process. 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.
