Environmental legislation is complex and a constantly developing area of law, covering a range of offences, which can relate to pollution (water, noise and air), the disposal and management of waste, and breaches in planning law.
Penalties on conviction can include fines and in severe cases imprisonment, as well as the associated damage to the reputation of you and your business.
We can provide expert support and representation to those under investigation by the Environmental Agency or relevant local authority.
