9 St John Street Health and Safety Team in Sentencing Guidelines Consultation

Christopher Kennedy QC; Matthew Snarr and Tom Gilbart have taken part in a round table event discussing the Sentencing Guidelines Council's proposed sentencing guidelines for Health and Safety offences.

The event was hosted by Eversheds in Leeds on 7.1.15 and was conducted as part of their preparations for responding to the current consultation on the guidelines. The invitees were those barristers who were recognised as leading practitioners in Health and Safety work in the North of England.

The proposed changes to the sentencing guidelines are likely to have a significant impact on Health and Safety law. Any solicitors who would wish to discuss or learn more about the proposed changes should contact chambers.

Mr Kennedy, Mr Snarr and Mr Gilbart are part of the 9 St John Street Health and Safety Team and their CVs can be found here.
