Consumer protection & trading standards

Powered by:

Gateley Legal

A business lives or dies by the integrity of its products – and challenges by Trading Standards can have a serious impact on your brand and your reputation. 

Whatever issues our clients face in their trading environment, our team can help. We advise clients on protecting their businesses and staying compliant with the latest trading standards regulations. Our track record of managing investigations and defending prosecutions enables us to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients in the event an investigation is launched.

What do we do?

We advise on all aspects of retail/ trading law and food and product safety law – everything from underweight goods to underage sales, product description problems or a full-scale product recall.

We can support with:

  • managing customer complaints;
  • organising PR messaging in the event of a product recall or safety notice being required;
  • guidance on the law and regulatory framework;
  • advice on the sales and promotions of goods to consumers, labelling, packaging, consumer information and product contamination;
  • complaints made to the Advertising Standards Authority; and
  • handling data protection compliance and Freedom of Information Act requests.
