Health and Safety Law advice from Ralli

If you use subcontracted staff both you as an individual and your company may be held responsible for that staff and prosecuted. This would include shadow directors as well as officers of your company. Conviction would not just result in fines but may attract lengthy periods of imprisonment.

I lost all faith in the British legal system and hold the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary in utter contempt. The case against me took more than four years from arrest to finally appearing in court. However, I was most fortuitous to meet Ralli Solicitors LLP, a firm of Solicitors a credit to the legal profession. The manner in which they set about defending me inspired confidence and helped me through my darkest hours. Ralli Solicitors LLP diligently examined the ‘evidence’ against me, painstakingly reading thousands of pages of emails, letters and documents with an unrelenting determination to prove my innocence. To simply say thank you does not adequately express the heartfelt debt of gratitude I hold. In addition to their professionalism the whole team were such nice people with compassion and an unbelievable dedication.

I was referred to ralli solicitors by a friend and Lynn Mahon was appointed as my legal representative. Since our first meeting all aspects of my case were explained and dealt with in a professional manner and any queries I had were explained and my mind was put at ease. I would certainly recommend Lynn Mahon to anyone needing legal advice.
