Consumer Protection & Trading Standards
Our Consumer rights lawyers specialise in assessing consumer contracts for individuals and businesses who have bought faulty goods or substandard services from a retailer or trader who refuses to offer a repair or refund the original purchase price. Further, they advise on copyright infringement, product labelling, misleading marketing and other unfair trading practices, pricing practices and underage sales.
Trading Standards prosecutions are serious and can result in custodial sentences. In the event of a successful prosecution you could receive a caution, a fine, conditions imposed upon licenses or even a revocation of your licence to trade.
Due to the complexity of the Trading Standard organisation and the laws they enforce, it’s essential to get expert legal advice from a team of lawyers that can negotiate if needed or forcibly defend your business.
Our lawyers have experience in advising a wide range of businesses and individuals, including producers and distributors, from small businesses to national manufacturers and retailers.
Oracle Solicitors can assist businesses to work through the complex issues and ramifications in a crisis scenario. We provide advice on issues such as the obligations of producers and others in the supply chain, notifying regulators, contacting consumers, responding to notices, and recalling affected products.
