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, the EA wields significant power and responsibilities and has been behind an ever-increasing number of high-profile prosecutions.

In some cases, fines in excess of £500,000 have been imposed against companies found guilty of regulatory breaches and professional misconduct.

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 0161 830 9632 or contact us and we’ll call you.

What sort of EA investigations can you help with?

There are a great many breaches and accidents that can lead to investigations by the Environment Agency. Some of the most common Environment Agency Investigation cases we’ve helped to defend our clients against include:

  • Representing companies in relation to waste entering waterways
  • Representing landowners subject to remediation notices
  • Advising on waste packaging regulations and enforcement action by Local Authorities

Our Regulatory Law Solicitors are here to advise you through every stage of an environmental investigation and prosecutions. These various stages may include interviews, disclosure and representation in court if matters ever get that far.

In addition to advising and defending you during Environment Agency investigations, we’re also committed to making our service as transparent and affordable as possible.

When you need the services of our specialist regulatory investigation solicitors, we’re usually happy to agree terms with your indemnity insurers and where that isn’t possible, to agree fixed fee terms and a programme of staged payments.

For advice on any aspect of compliance with environmental regulations or for help in defending yourself against an EA investigation, talk to one of our specialist HSE solicitors today by calling 0161 830 9632 or contact us and we’ll be happy to call you.
