In terms of their strength and depth, they are absolutely first-class.



Most commercial activity and land development is subject to complex environmental and health and safety legislation.

We have the expertise to help our clients to comply with that legislation and to manage any claims or prosecutions that arise from its contravention. Plus we can help you in your dealings with the Environment Agency and local authorities who monitor land use, industrial site operations and waste disposal.

Our team advises construction and groundworks contractors regarding their waste management duties and represents those undertakings in the event of prosecution. We advise in relation to risk management and provide damage limitation strategies to be adopted in the event of a culpable incident.
