Investigations, regulatory compliance & enforcement
It can be very stressful to receive a notice or “request” to make yourself available for interview by a seemingly hostile, suspicious and aggressive government agency. Why should an investigator be able to pry into your documents? Thankfully, the experienced lawyers at Longton Legal can assist you with an appropriate response which takes into consideration your situation, aims and objectives. Frankly, investigations are a waste of your time and money when you have done nothing wrong. There is, however, a way to speak to regulators which enables them to complete and finalise their investigation but doesn’t compromise your position. Our aim is to end the process as soon as possible with no negative outcome so you can get back to business. But sometimes the regulator just gets it wrong. Our lawyers are experienced with enforcement of your rights in court against such bodies as the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA), various state licensing bodies and others. Don’t risk loss of your licence/accreditation or an expensive prosecution without aggressive legal assistance!
