With specialist environmental lawyers who have prior experience as senior technical consultants you're working with a team that really understands your situation.
Greenwoods’ environmental lawyers are valuable to their clients, as they have a thorough understanding of all aspects of their clients’ cases; not just the legal areas. It also means that there is minimal requirement to draft in external technical assistance, which other law firms would need to do. Clients find this practical experience invaluable in understanding and assisting with their cases.
We provide legal advice and support in all environmental non-contentious matters. Property clients often face contaminated land liability issues when buying or leasing land and property, especially as more and more land is ‘brownfield’ and has a legacy of historic contamination. Remediation of such land is often extensive and costly, so clients require specialist advice relating to environmental warranties prior to purchase or lease.
Environmental matters also often arise as side-issues in corporate acquisitions and take overs, and clients are often not aware of the obligations under environmental legislation, such as the Packaging Regulations. We guide businesses through all the legislation that is relevant to ‘get it right’ at an early stage - saving time, money, and keeping the Regulator away!
Recent advice has included:
- Contaminated land liability in property transactions
- Environmental warranties and indemnitites in leases
- Packaging legislation and requirements
- Planning issues
- Statutory Nuisance Appeals
- Environmental accreditation (e.g. ISO 14001)
- What happens if you don’t comply!
