Awani Patel

Business and regulatory crime / Health and safety / Trading standards / Fostering / Motoring and haulage / Care

I am a qualified solicitor and specialise in all areas of crime and regulatory matters. This includes advising businesses and individuals on their health and safety obligations and offering practical advice on carrying out risk assessments. 

I also represent individuals and businesses facing allegations of health and safety breaches, environmental and food safety offences. 

My experience also includes representing foster carers facing allegations of serious physical and sexual abuse of foster children. 



Awani was absolutely fantastic and made the whole process much more straightforward whilst reducing the stress and anxiety that an allegation inevitably brings. Awani was easy to talk to and very empathetic, making us feel that at least one person was on our side throughout the whole difficult experience.

I spoke with J this week who could not speak more highly of the support he has received from both the FN and you Awani. At a time which causes probably the most anxiety for carers, it is really appreciated when support is required it comes at such a high standard.
