Health, safety and environmental
Supporting you through legal action following a health and safety or environmental event.
If you're facing investigation or enforcement activity in respect of a health and safety or environmental breach or incident, let us help you.
We have an impressive track record in working with companies and individuals in cases involving the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Environment Agency (EA), local authorities and the police.
We'll provide expert advice and a sensitive support service following what could be an unfortunate or even tragic event.
Where we need to work alongside lawyers in other jurisdictions, we call upon our international best friend network of law firms to provide local expertise. This helps us ensure we find the right local lawyer for the job thereby keeping cost and indemnity spend down.
