Holmes’ expertise covers all aspects of environmental issues. You do not have to be engaged in an obviously environmentally sensitive activity to be affected by the complexities of current environmental regulations.
We handle claims arising from exposure to hazardous substances, landfills or contaminated watercourses and we proactively advise on regulatory and environmental compliance requirements. We defend our clients in respect of environmental prosecutions and actions involving losses and damages from contamination, odour nuisance and other environmental factors. The impact may be personal injury, damage to third-party property, business interruption, or contamination of air, land, or water. We support clients on the management of pollution and contamination liabilities, clean up and remediation programmes. We help our clients through their crises, ensuring regulatory obligations are fulfilled, reputational damage is controlled, and the risk of third-party claims minimised.
