Health, Safety & Environmental Risks


We advise clients in France and internationally on the full range of contentious and non-contentious environmental matters, many of which are high profile and of national significance. 

We advise on compliance issues and changes that can be made to your policies and procedures to help you try to avoid incidents, investigations and prosecutions in the future. Our extensive experience ensures we can support you and your organisation in dealing with any health and safety, environmental and regulatory incident or challenge. Our lawyers are responsive to ensure you obtain advice when it suits you.

We work alongside insurers as an integral part of their team, ensuring that the essential liability investigations are completed to enable an early assessment of liability to be taken, and evidence preserved to enable civil claims to be defended or settled.

We have particular expertise in the following areas:

  • Major and often complex residential, commercial and retail-led mixed use development, many of which are regeneration projects
  • Major infrastructure projects
  • Compulsory purchase powers, appropriation and related compensation claims
  • Environmental compliance, including permitting, waste, emissions and pollution
  • Providing training on compliance, managing risk, common pitfalls
