Environment

We handle a wide range of environmental law issues from compliance, management and liability to the environmental aspects of corporate and financing transactions.

Our work includes advising on:

  • the identification and management of contaminated land, particularly under the contaminated land power which came into force in 2000 - whether or not to carry out intrusive investigations and what to do with the results of any such investigation
  • claims in relation to contaminated land - by the Environment Agency that remediation is required, or private claims between adjoining landowners or landlord and tenant
  • environmental insurance - obtaining, negotiating and advising on insurance policies
  • compliance and permitting - applications for Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control permits
  • directors' liability for environmental and health and safety matters
  • environmental management procedures - establishing internal monitoring and reporting structures
  • auditing and privilege - selecting, instructing and defining the terms of reference for environmental consultants
  • planning, noise abatement and emissions trading


Samantha Brady is Senior Counsel in our environment practice.
