Welcome to Environmental

With the drive for ‘greener’ methods and an improved environment, the laws which govern environmental activities are getting ever stricter.

The effects of environmental legislation are no longer just restricted to heavy industrial sectors but are felt across the public service arena.

As a result, fulfilling environmental obligations whilst keeping a close eye on resources and operations is becoming increasingly hard for a growing list of organisations.

Our specialist environment team can help to maintain that tricky balance, ensuring that your organisation stays on the right side of the law whilst continuing to carry out its work.

We have a broad experience of environmental and waste management issues, including dealing with clinical waste and hazardous waste, fulfilling emissions obligations and recycling.

We have advised a number of local authorities on contracts with commercial waste management providers and we have a proven ability to tackle all kinds of environmental issues.

In addition, we have particular expertise in dealing with environmental litigation and defending against prosecutions by environmental authorities and other regulatory bodies.

So, if things do go wrong, we are ready to step in on your side.

Our services include:

  • Asbestos management advice
  • Carbon reduction advice
  • Carbon trading
  • Emissions obligations
  • Energy efficiency
  • Enforcement action advice
  • Environmental permitting
  • Noise nuisance
  • Producer responsibility
  • Recycling
  • Sustainability issues
  • Waste issues
  • Water pollution prosecution
  • Wildlife and habitat issues
