As corporations and organisations increasingly embed environmental compliance into their infrastructure, products, services, supply chains and investments, environmental law now impacts most sectors and jurisdictions. Our Environment team supports clients across a diverse range of business sectors including power, waste, water, construction, finance and technology.
The team provides a comprehensive service in this fast evolving and diverse area of law. Many of our clients are leaders in their fields and are subject to complex environmental regulation with far reaching application. We work hard to ensure we understand what’s around the corner for them, which means having expertise as environmental law applies and develops locally, nationally and at an international level.
The lawyers in our team relish the diversity of the services we provide for our clients: whether it’s assisting with complex regulatory advice, managing a business critical pollution incident, advising on environmental liability risk in a corporate or real estate transaction or preparing contracts for an environmental infrastructure project, our goal is to provide tailored and commercially relevant advice which supports with our client’s objectives.
