Bexley Beaumont: An award-winning boutique law firm with an inclusive and collaborative team culture and an uncompromising approach to quality aligning the interests of both clients and lawyers. Senior experienced lawyers with a wealth of commercial acumen acting as trusted advisors providing legal solutions across all commercial disciplines.

Environmental protection, energy and climate issues have gained in significance and public profile over recent years. Navigating the regulatory maze can be complex and challenging. The consequences of getting it wrong can be huge and the impact of environmental damage can affect anyone.

Many, such as those in the waste, water or property development sectors, may be well aware that they are caught by environmental regulation but perhaps need support with compliance and risk management. Others may not know the extent of their obligations. For instance, most organisations generate waste and uses resources such as water and energy, and all businesses – and even householders - have regulatory obligations to some degree.

We work with businesses and individuals across all sectors to find a practical way through. We can advise on the full range of environmental regulatory regimes, helping you towards compliance but also supporting you in the event of regulatory investigation or enforcement action, such as prosecution.

We also have a wealth of experience in litigation relating to environmental damage and in public law challenges, such as judicial review and statutory appeals – acting for claimants, defendants or other interested parties.

We work closely with our real estate or corporate teams where transactions involve environmental issues, helping our clients to identify and manage any environmental risks, and with our planning team to successfully address environmental constraints in the planning system.

Our areas of expertise include:

We also offer training on environmental compliance and risk management, for all sectors and across all levels of your business.
