Experience

She supports businesses across all sectors to ensure that they are not left exposed by poor transport regulatory compliance. Where things don't go according to plan, she can help a business to protect its operator licence and defend it in the criminal courts.

Joanne defends companies and company directors who are facing investigation and criminal prosecution by the police, the Health and Safety Executive and local authorities following workplace incidents.

She advises clients at all stages of an investigation and prosecution, including internal accident investigations in "crisis" scenarios, formal interviews under caution, Coroner's inquests and criminal trials.
