Environmental Law Solicitors

Our approach to business and what makes us different

Welcome To Environmental Law Chambers

PLEASE NOTE THAT WE HAVE MOVED OFFICES (although email and mobile details remain unchanged).

Our new switchboard number is 0141 354 7620 (fax 0141 354 7621).

Our new postal address is Blue Square Offices, 272 Bath Street, Glasgow, G2 4JR.

Please update your Address Book with the new details.

We are a specialist firm of solicitors, founded and managed by one of the few Accredited Specialists in Environmental Law. The subject remains a huge growth area in terms of both ever-tightening regulation and business compliance costs, and the increasing ease of environmental challenges. Further complications exist as a result of Brexit and the different legal systems within the UK. 

We bring a fresh approach to how legal services in this niche area should be provided to businesses and individuals, plus complete transparency on fees, with fixed or capped costs being agreed at the outset.

In recognition of our innovative approach, we have won over 70 awards and accolades since we began in 2010. For further details please click on Awards

 

(LEGAL 500 NEWS: Our firm has once again been recognised as a Leading Firm for Environmental expertise in the most recent edition of the Legal 500, with Barry Love listed as a "Leading Lawyer". In addition, Barry Love was recently re-accredited by the Law Society of Scotland for an additional 5 year period as a specialist in Environmental Law)

WHY USE THE ENVIRONMENTAL LAW CHAMBERS ?

As a subject, Environmental Law has grown hugely in the last 20 years, fuelled by a never-ending flow of new policy and legislation, mostly from Europe. A subject once confined to issues of pollution and nature conservation has gradually expanded to include major areas such as Waste, Industrial regulation, Renewables, and Climate Change. That expansion will only continue.

With over 800 items of European legislation, 300+ Directives, a myriad of implementing regulations across the different UK jurisdictions, and all of the fallout from Brexit, the ONLY way to master the subject is to focus on nothing else.

With our unashamedly specialist focus we avoid the overheads of an 'all-services' firm. There are many fewer mouths to feed, and less administration. That means we can pass on the benefits of those efficiencies to our clients through our charge-out rates. 

That's our USP - highly specialist input that's genuinely good value. Business has long been crying out for it but the legal market has been slow to respond - until now.

Environment Law by Topic

As well as dividing along industrial lines, environmental law of course divides across a wide spectrum of legal pigeon holes:

Our legal team have experience of all of these areas, with valuable knowledge having been gained from previous work on behalf of the European Commission, assessing how well various EU Member States had transposed the principal 25-30 environmental Directives into their own law.
