Do I need a solicitor for an Environment Agency investigation?
The Environment Agency (EA) is a Government agency with responsibility for the protection and enhancement of the environment in England.
In the modern era, where concern for the climate and the environment is at an all-time high, wields significant power and responsibilities and has been behind an ever-increasing number of high-profile prosecutions.
In the first instance, our specialist regulatory solicitors work with companies like yours to help ensure that you remain compliant with all relevant environmental laws and regulations, including those regarding registrations and permits.
We’re also here to help should you find yourselves subject to investigation by your Local Authority or the Environment Agency for alleged regulatory breaches. Such investigations can be intrusive and far-reaching, leading to a decision being taken about whether to seek enforcement action against you, or in some cases, whether to bring a prosecution.
For that reason, it’s essential that you seek specialist legal advice immediately if you fall under investigation for regulatory compliance breaches by your Local Authority or the Environment Agency. Talk to one of our specialist defence solicitors today by calling or contact us and we’ll call you.

I was represented by Slater and Gordon in a drink driving case. They could not have been more helpful. My solicitor supported me with understanding and consideration; listening to my concerns and worries prior to the case, whilst supplying me with sensible and practical advice. I could not have managed this awful experience without the support I gained from Slater and Gordon. Mrs A, South East (criminal defence case)
