trading standards, product liability and food safety

We provide advice on the full range of trading standards and environmental health enforcement:

  • Trading standards
  • Product liability
  • Food safety, hygiene, imitation and labelling

  • Toys safety
  • Electromagnetic compatibility
  • Advocacy in all courts
  • Unfair commercial practices
  • Training


Our lawyers are experts in this field.  Simon Joyston-Bechal's medical expertise gives him a particularly strong understanding of product safety and food safety matters.  For example, he has successfully challenged hygiene emergency prohibition notices by mustering expert evidence to show that mouse contamination of food products gave a very much lower risk of illness than was required to justify this draconian enforcement power.
