Trading Standards Investigations

ABV Solicitors have in depth experience in this niche area of regulatory criminal law, which involves prosecution of a business or individual by agencies including Local Authority Trading Standards Departments and The Office of Fair Trading.

These prosecutions can involve a variety of issues including trade descriptions, trademark and copyright infringement, sale of counterfeit goods, product safety and unfair commercial practices breaching the Unfair Trading Regulations 2008.

The investigation will often involve test-purchasing, entry of premises with or without a warrant, seizing and detaining goods and documentation, and interviewing at a local authority office or a police station.

It is liable to result in prosecution in the criminal courts although, on occasions, trading standards issues can be addressed by formal or informal agreements or undertakings as to future conduct.

The early involvement of an experienced Solicitor is particularly important in trading standards investigations. This can often lead to a case being resolved without the need for court proceedings. Even if there is a prosecution the early involvement of our team can lay the foundations to a successful defence.
