Environmental Regulation Solicitors | Irwin Mitchell

In such a fast-moving regulatory landscape, it’s vital businesses keep up with developments in environmental law and regulation. Our environmental lawyers provide advice and training for companies wanting to understand and minimise their liabilities.

If your company is facing an investigation or prosecution from the Environment Agency, we can advise on all aspects of the process. We have defended many businesses from regulatory prosecutions – particularly in the construction, demolition and manufacturing sectors.
