The need to protect and enhance our environment has led to a heavily-regulated landscape in the UK. Clients benefit from our substantial experience, borne from representing some of the largest regional and national companies across a wide variety of environmental regulation issues.
The team uniquely also has the benefit of experience in prosecuting environmental matters; thus broadening their understanding of this area of law and how it is regulated.
Recent environmental cases for the team include:
- representing companies prosecuted for pollution incidents
- representing a national construction company in relation to a number of waste management issues
- representing individuals facing prosecution for breaching tree preservation orders
- prosecuting waste management offences on behalf of a local authority.
