I lead our environment team in providing advice in relation to all elements of environmental law, from advising on how to best deal with the potentially painful matter of environmental liabilities to helping clients capitalise on environmental improvement initiatives, as well as providing strategic advice.
I have worked for both potentially contaminating businesses - assessing statutory requirements, compliance and risk issues - and also for property developers acquiring potentially contaminated land for redevelopment. I advise all manner of clients on environmental issues including in relation to real estate development and brownfield regeneration and remediation, land contamination, green leases, environmental protection, environmental impact assessments and all aspects of environmental and related planning law.
I also advise on new initiatives such as the carbon reduction commitment energy efficiency scheme and feed-in tariffs, one of the key focuses being to help a broad range of clients make the best of new environmental developments, schemes and innovation.
I am a member of the UK Environmental Law Association
