We have extensive experience in marine regulation in matters investigated and prosecuted by the Maritime and Coastguard Agency and other regulatory bodies. Gordon’s regulatory practice has extended in scope to include shore based regulatory matters such as investigations by the Health & Safety Executive, Port and Local Authorities.
He has particular experience in conducting cases that involve alleged health and safety breaches of the Merchant Shipping Act 1995 and the associated regulations as well the collision regulations. The offshore and shore based regulations operate within a general framework for health and safety such as the provision and use of work equipment and working from height. This has allowed Gordon to expand his practice in to actions involving the Health & Safety Executive and Local Authorities.
