Our team has a proven track record in successfully defending safety prosecutions. In 2018, we successfully defended a Site Manager of a construction company who had been charged over the death of two workers that occurred during the unloading of concrete panels. Our client was acquitted of the charge and the prosecutor ordered to pay the legal costs.
Director, Simon Billing has been at the forefront of many of the most contentious health and safety cases in WA across the mining, construction and engineering and agribusiness sectors. For example, from 2007 to 2013 he acted for Fortescue Metals in relation to the Cyclone George disaster and successfully defended Fortescue and its subsidiary on the 18 criminal charges brought against it following the multiple fatalities and serious injuries to workers. His clients were acquitted and the prosecutors ordered to pay the legal costs.
