Environment, health and safety

Overview

We advise our clients on a wide range of environmental, health and safety (EHS) law issues, including in connection with corporate and commercial real estate transactions, infrastructure development and financing, regulatory compliance and dispute resolution.

Our clients have told us that they want to understand the opportunities that EHS and climate change legislation and policy create, rather than focusing solely on liabilities. We have responded with a creative and innovative approach that, in combination with our proven expertise, enables us to add value to our clients’ business undertakings.

Building on our experience in the more traditional areas, such as soil and groundwater contamination, permitting, asbestos and health and safety, we have developed our capabilities in emerging areas, notably product stewardship, climate change and carbon issues. This has seen us advise clients in a number of high-profile cases, including what has been acknowledged as the most significant environmental class action to be brought before the UK Courts to date.

Internationally, our clients benefit from our independent status, which enables us to put together tailor-made teams of genuine legal and technical EHS experts. Given the EU and international drivers behind much of EHS legislation and policy, our approach means we can offer a first-class and truly dedicated EHS service.
