Increasingly, businesses and those managing businesses are subject to regulation.  As a result, directors are held ever more responsible for their actions. 

BTO assists regularly directors and officers in health and safety and other statutory or regulatory investigations, inquiries and prosecutions.  Therefore BTO is very experienced in protecting the interests of directors and officers and defending them against the risks they face in the daily running of their businesses. 

Employees, regulatory authorities, competitors and even shareholders can all, potentially, bring proceedings against directors.  BTO has experience in all of these areas. 

BTO has both initiated, and assisted organisations in dealing with the consequences of, ‘dawn raids’. 

BTO also brings to bear in this area its established track record in advising insurers on all aspects of policy interpretation and coverage issues.
