We are one of the UK’s leading environmental law firms. Unlike many firms, we have a standalone environment group — not a team that is an add-on to a real-estate, planning or energy practice.
Our approach is practical and commercial. We help our clients assess risk and avoid problems. Where they do have problems, we help solve them. Where damage is inevitable, we strive to limit it, with particular emphasis on protecting reputation and, when necessary, individuals.
We usually work with our clients to avoid litigation. But when we can’t avoid it, our combination of in-depth commercial understanding and criminal advocacy know-how makes us a formidable force. We also have an experience of the appeals system and judicial review.
In non-contentious areas, our environment lawyers do a wide variety of ‘pure’ environmental work, as well as advising on risk assessment and apportionment in corporate, property and financing transactions. They also work closely with our specialists in the areas of planning, energy and EU law.
Our clients include European and US investors in the UK, government departments and agencies, local authorities, banks, investment funds, landowners, utility operators, property companies, landfill operators, professional bodies and companies from many other sectors, including manufacturing, waste, chemicals, construction, house building, rail, mining, quarrying, oil and energy.
The most recent Chambers directory praised our ‘genuinely excellent’ specialists for their ‘commercial understanding of environmental issues’ and their ‘incredibly strong sense of strategy and tactics’.
