Environmental Issues

Waste management, duty of care regulations and defending Environment Agency prosecutions.

Environmental law is a vast and complex area of legislation. But ignorance is no excuse, and with heavy penalties for breaching the environmental rules, it's something you literally can't afford to leave to chance.

You don’t need to be processing uranium or manufacturing agrochemicals to have an environmental impact. Whatever the size or nature of your business, there's a welter of legislation that could affect your operations - and plenty of enforcement agencies ready to use it. So whether the issue is water pollution or waste, air quality or asbestos, packaging or contaminated land, we're here to provide:

  • Defence advocacy for Environment Agency prosecutions
  • Waste management compliance advice
  • Advice on noise abatement notices
  • Waste management trading contracts
