Corporate manslaughter

Employers have a duty of care to their staff, and under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act companies and organisations can be charged if management failures and health and safety breaches resulted in a fatality.

Although prosecutions of this sort are fairly rare the cases can be incredibly complex, requiring the comprehensive knowledge of skilled legal professionals to secure a successful outcome. JMW’s team has varied experience in working with corporate clients and we will draw on knowledge from different JMW departments to help with your defence.

Each corporate manslaughter case involves building a bespoke team of lawyers including advocates and consultants where appropriate. We are able to call upon in-house assistance from recognised leaders in the areas such as employment law, corporate recovery, commercial litigation, reputational management and others.

If you are facing corporate manslaughter charges then seeking legal advice as soon as possible is absolutely imperative – contact JMW now on 0345 872 6666 for further assistance.
