Our experienced team of waste and water lawyers supports clients with the challenges and opportunities associated with this fast-moving and highly regulated sector. We help clients navigate complex regulation whether environmental, health and safety, competition, public procurement/outsourcing, consumer protection or white-collar-crime related, and develop new infrastructure projects and commercial frameworks for businesses in the sector.

Our water team advises clients involved in all aspects of the water industry cycle whether abstraction, collection, treatment, supply or wastewater/sewage. Our lawyers have been working in the waste industry for a number of years and have advised on a number of large, complex water projects. Our work in this area covers corporate transactions, water-pollution enforcement, maximising property assets with renewable energy schemes, market regulatory changes and requests under the Environmental Information Regulations.

Our waste team has been advising global waste corporates and domestic companies on the full spectrum of waste-related agreements for many years. We provide a wide range of services, including planning, property, public procurement, waste contracts, permitting and Environment Agency enforcement. Our aim is to give advice that works in the context of this fast-developing industry and that helps you achieve your business objectives. Our experienced lawyers understand the challenges associated with alternative waste treatment technologies. We help clients with matters ranging from day-to-day queries, such as feedstock contracts and environmental regulation, through to the financing and development of new energy-from-waste infrastructure.

We are one of a few firms with a market-leading reputation on merchant bioenergy projects and our corporate finance experience means that we regularly advise venture capital and private equity funders of waste businesses.
