Environmental Claims

Our recognised position as an insurance law firm makes us a first port of call for businesses facing substantial environmental claims.

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 in 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 we undertake the defence of civil proceedings brought against their insureds by third parties, including professional indemnity claims against environmental consultants.

Our solicitors also advise insurers on policy wordings and related environmental coverage issues, whether involving property damage, public liability, product liability, environmental impairment or D&O coverages.
