Regulatory & Disciplinary Investigations

Hodge Jones & Allen has an enviable track record of defending both individuals and businesses facing investigations by local government or industry regulators. We also advise members of professional bodies facing disciplinary investigations, for example doctors, dentists, solicitors and accountants.

Whatever your situation, we are not afraid to challenge the most formidable opponents. Should your investigation develop into a prosecution, we have considerable experience of representing sole traders and companies in both the Magistrates Court and Crown Court. We are meticulous in marshalling the best possible arguments in your defence and very often we succeed in preventing a case from even reaching court.

It is only right that you should expect the very best legal team at your side to protect your reputation and livelihood. Where regulators have unfairly overstepped the mark or have failed to take into account mitigating circumstances we have robustly challenged this.

We have advised clients on regulatory actions in relation to:

  • Age restricted products
  • Financial advice
  • Environmental law
  • Licensing law
  • Food safety
  • Health and safety
  • Trading standards
  • Waste regulation
  • Dispensing of medication
  • Water pollution


Jennifer Siddorn represented a client who was prosecuted for misleading marketing. We successfully negotiated both a favourable plea and sentence for our client.

In addition, members of HJA’s Serious Fraud Team have previously dealt with the following cases:

  • Acted for individuals who operate money service bureaux in submissions to both FCA as the regulator and HMRC in relation to the “fit and proper” test
  • Represented both corporates and individuals in relation to breaches of licensing conditions
  • Represented company officers in relation to alleged health and safety breaches from the moment a complaint arises
