What our Environmental Law Barristers offer

Kings Chambers has become widely recognised as providing the highest quality of advice and advocacy in the field of environmental law. 

Environmental law lies at the heart of a wide spectrum of work and it is therefore crucial that good quality advice is available at the earliest time. Kings Chambers specialises in providing that advice and informing projects and plans from their inception to their completion.

There is a wide range of experience in our specialist barrister team from local authority enforcement work through to the auditing of Environmental Statements. Such work also regularly takes Kings Chambers barristers to the Administrative Court sitting in London and its regional centres.

Our environmental law barristers regularly appear in a variety of different forums where environmental law is debated, from magistrates courts, the Crown Court, public inquiries and specialist tribunals through to the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

 

Areas of Environmental Law we cover:

  • Contaminated land and pollution
  • Drainage and water
  • EIA
  • Environmental Permitting
  • Habitat Protection
  • Statutory Nuisance
