Environmental law is a broad area covering many issues, including climate change, conservation, emissions, food production, noise pollution, planning and waste management.
Environmental issues can be complex and overlap with several other areas of law, including public law and planning. Our team consists of experienced practitioners who have acted in a variety of complex, novel and high profile cases.
We can assist in a range of environmental law issues at various stages, including equipping clients with pre-litigation advice and guiding clients through relevant court processes, such as judicial reviews and statutory appeals.
We have broad experience in advising a range of clients, including charities and third sector organisations, developers, campaign groups, and individuals. As an example, we acted for an environmental group in a crowdfunded legal challenge to a raven-culling licence granted in Perthshire. The licence was voluntarily suspended after a review concluded that it was not scientifically robust.
