We advise businesses across a variety of sectors on regulatory, permitting and compliance related issues.
Particular areas of strength include air and water pollution, waste management and shipment, land contamination, noise abatement and hazardous substances.
The global slowdown has led to significant corporate restructuring, plant closures and mothballing. Environmental issues are often a key consideration in these decisions given the need to minimise the environmental legacy and eliminate longer term risks.
We advise on health and safety issues in transactions and on a stand-alone basis. This ranges from strategic issues concerning board-level health and safety responsibilities to practical guidance over health and safety issues, relationships with contractors and health and safety-related proceedings.
We also assist on measures to prevent bribery and corruption issues connected to environmental and wider compliance matters.
