Environmental compliance and liability issues are now part of everyday life for most businesses – be they engaged in evidently hazardous activities or otherwise. Regulatory demands, however, continue to grow in response to increasingly international environmental concerns and throw up more and more compliance issues, as well as liability issues in business transactions. To steer successfully through this regulatory jungle requires specialist expertise on a global scale.

As one of the first law firms to develop a global integrated environmental law practice, we are able to provide both transactional and stand alone advice in all the major areas of environmental and health and safety law at national, regional and international levels.
