We have been working collaboratively with clients - including property developers, energy suppliers, manufacturers, transport businesses, agri-businesses, pharmaceutical businesses, sporting organisations, local authorities and statutory bodies – on environmental and planning matters for over 15 years.
The team is recognised for their extensive experience advising on the full breadth of non-contentious planning, waste management and environmental law, as well as on contentious issues - including representing clients in oral hearings and judicial review proceedings.
Our lawyers understand that planning and environmental problems can result in significant delays and costs if they are not resolved quickly. We work together with clients to solve the commercial issues at play in projects in addition to addressing the legal aspects.
