Extensive experience working in high hazard industries including energy, waste and water: advising on complex compliance issues.
Our team are industry experts who draw from a breadth of experience within and outside of their legal careers, and can help bridge the gap between legal and technical issues to ensure that regulators are effectively engaged on issues of commercial importance, while maintaining productive and co-operative relationships.
In addition to health & safety law we advise on all manner of regulatory issues, including: environmental permitting; waste management and classification; ‘end of waste’; pollution incidents; compliance schemes and subsidies. This includes negotiating with regulators as well as defending prosecutions brought by the Environment Agency, DEFRA, Ofgem, DWI or Ofwat.
The team also assists clients with crisis management following serious, complex and media-sensitive incidents. Following such incidents, resources are often stretched and legal support to help co-ordinate the response often means the difference between success and failure. We are experienced in working as part of a multi-disciplinary team to manage all the relevant risks: legal, practical and reputational.
There are proactive steps businesses can take to make themselves more resilient to regulatory issues and incidents – by carrying out a simple audit we can help your business develop the right protections; from training, internal monitoring and development to crisis response systems.
