Since the introduction of the new sentencing guidelines for health and safety offences the number of prosecutions brought against individuals has dramatically increased. We have seen the courts hand down a range of sentences to company directors and sole traders; from immediate and suspended custodial sentences to fines and director disqualification.

My Crisis is here to protect YOU (individuals, directors and office holders) should you encounter your own personal crisis that could result in an investigation or prosecution.

The list is endless and so too are the laws that regulate the activities of companies and their directors.
