Iain is able to offer a very broad base of knowledge and experience across the full range of consumer and regulatory law. This includes the prosecution and defence of regulatory offences at every level of the criminal justice system. His work in this area has included issues such as unfair commercial practices within the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 (including pricing issues and sales practices), food safety and hygiene, health and safety and fire safety and weights and measures issues.
Iain is also vastly experienced in the civil aspects of regulatory law, particularly applications under the Enterprise Act 2002. In addition to litigation in this area, Iain is regularly involved in the provision of advice on regulatory compliance (such as advice on the drafting of consumer contracts, sales scripts and other marketing issues) and meeting regulatory enforcement action.
Iain is an editor of the “Pink Book” (Consumer and Trading Standards: Law and Practice published by Lexis Nexis, now in its 10th (2022) edition)
