Corporate Crime / Regulatory Offenses

When a business violates a law, the business as well as its principals may be subjected to criminal prosecution as well as civil prosecution. Many of these laws are contained in the California Business and Professions Code and the California Health and Safety Code. Examples include Building Code Violations, failing to provide service in the manner advertised or required by law, operating a business without a relevant license, and many others. For instance, the Building and Professions Code includes provisions controlling the Department of Consumer Affairs,  Healing Arts, Professions Generally,  Real Estate, Weights and Measures, and others.

Recently, the Business and Professions Code has been expanded to include the regulation of cannabis.

The Health and Safety Code includes provisions controlling the Administration of Public Health, Licensing of Medical Care Providers,  The Uniform Controlled Substances Act, The Fire CodeThe Building Code, and many others.

Alleged violation of any of the above may result in potential legal action against entities regulated by the Business and Professions Code as well as the Health and Safety Code. For this reason, it is highly important that any entity under investigation for commission of a regulatory offense or corporate crime hire a skilled defense attorney as soon as possible.
