Workcover (OH&S) Prosecution

A death or serious injury in the workplace can have an overwhelming impact on the reputation of a business and that of employees and management. Coming to terms with the event can be challenging for any business.

The management of any serious workplace accident must be treated with the utmost seriousness, as criminal charges can be laid if a business or individuals are found to have been negligent. Our lawyers are able to oversee and advise your business as it goes through the process of responding to an investigation into a death or serious injury at your workplace.

Environmental Prosecution

Environmental offences can be broad and can range from illegal development and building works, damaging habitat of threatened species to illegal tree removal. Businesses and individuals have significant legal obligations to reduce and manage the impact that their activities have on the environment.

These obligations are governed by complex legislation, and if a corporation or individual is found in breach of an environmental law, they can be at risk of facing criminal and civil law enforcement proceedings. Company directors and senior management can be found personally liable for the environmental conduct of their corporations resulting in the offence.

Seeking legal advice early may minimise the overall consequence of being prosecuted for an offence: including avoiding substantial legal costs, or being convicted of an environmental offence for an individual or company. Having your legal interests protected during this process is vital.
