Environment & Planning

Our Environment & Planning Team has extensive experience of providing integrated planning and environment advice to a wide range of clients across pharmaceutical, manufacturing, energy, construction, retail, professional services, technology and waste sectors.

We integrate as a team with our clients, including their technical and engineering advisors.

In this way, we navigate a project through the environmental, licensing and regulatory requirements from concept to operation, completion, and remediation.

We have particular expertise in assisting clients to realise renewable energy projects from concept to operation. We also provide focused, transaction-oriented environmental legal due diligence support for property and corporate transactions.

Our Environment & Planning Team draws on the skills and technical knowledge of Solicitors from other parts of our Firm, including Real Estate, Corporate, Construction and Litigation & Dispute Resolution.
