Workplace Risk and Regulation

Organisations face challenges dealing both with people and regulatory compliance.  These are challenges that need to be assessed and addressed, whether that is their own staff, their customers, or contractors attending the workplace, or the need to comply with legislation and licensing requirements. Our team can help.


Shepherd & Wedderburn offers a one-stop shop where specialists in health & safety, employment, immigration, data protection, personal injury and litigation and licensing are able to tailor advice for clients and ensure all relevant issues have been considered. 

Clients across the UK seek our advice from our offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and London.

The Workplace Risk and Regulation team pool together legal expertise in traditionally separate sectors to offer clients the most comprehensive advice to the workplace regulatory challenges they face.

Our team of experts advise clients on the practical measures that they can take to ensure compliance with the relevant legal obligations, mitigate risk, or respond to intervention from the regulatory authorities.

Each client is unique. That’s why our response is unique too. We aim to understand our client’s business needs and advise on the relevant legal issues. Whether you are a director seeking a full review of a company’s policy or procedures, your company is being formally investigated by a regulator, the team at Shepherd & Wedderburn is on hand to assist your business with these challenges.  

They take time to gain a thorough understanding of the complexities of our organisation, along with our key personnel. They are also very quick to respond and provide updates on matters."
