Environmental Health

Environmental prosecutions tend to be relating to pollution cases or breaches of environmental permits and their conditions. Our experience has shown that the success of environmental litigation and claim management depends to a large extent on successfully combining legal and technical expertise. With our strong sector knowledge, we combine environmental and litigation expertise to advise our clients in complex civil, criminal and administrative disputes and proceedings, expert determinations and arbitrations.

We have experience of defending house owners, small businesses through to industrialists and commercial entities. We can also defend or represent a Local Authority for prosecution brought for fly-tipping and unauthorised disposal of waste be it commercial or residential. We also have asbestos litigation experience and deal with claims arising from exposure to asbestos. We can also advise on further aspects of environmental law e.g. water waste, contaminated land, Environmental Impact Assessment and prosecution for the hose pipe bands.

• Mold
• Indoor Air Quality
• Chemical Toxicity
• Toxic Torts
