We offer clients access to specialist environmental solicitors with expertise in handling claims arising from exposure to hazardous substances, landfills, or contaminated watercourses and we proactively advise on regulatory and environmental compliance requirements.
We defend our customers in respect of environmental prosecutions and respect of group actions involving losses and damages from contamination, odour nuisance, and other environmental factors.
We also commence subrogation proceedings against third parties for recovery of insurers’ outlay and undertake the defence of civil proceedings brought against their insureds by third parties, including professional indemnity claims against environmental consultants.
Our solicitors advise insurers on policy wordings and related environmental coverage issues, whether involving property damage, public liability, product liability, environmental impairment, or D&O coverages.
