From assessing environmental risk through regulatory compliance to business and environmental damage prevention and impact limitation, Hill Dickinson helps clients deal with the full range of environmental issues.
Our specialist team has extensive experience of the often overlapping criminal and civil perspectives of environmental problems.
Regulators including the Environment Agency and Defra as well as company insurers invariably impose strict requirements on businesses whose operations have the potential to impact on the environment.
Strict requirements are easily breached and prosecutions often follow. It is vital to act promptly to minimise the consequences - both legal and practical. How an investigation is handled can make all the difference to the final outcome. Our experienced team offer practical advice to protect your position throughout an investigation and prosecution.
We have built respected relationships with regulators such as Defra and the Environment Agency through many years of opposing and working with them on behalf of our clients to find solutions to problems including:
- Pollution claims, including dust contamination, odour and noise
- Environmental compliance
- Transfrontier waste shipment
- Packaging regulations
- Pesticide control
- Environmental risk
- Environmental damage
- Personal injury claims
- Nuisance claims
