Nuisance and public health
What our barristers do
We deal with cases on private nuisance such as odours, noise, land contamination, often working with leading specialist consultants. We also take cases on public nuisance, statutory nuisance, and related Human Rights Act claims, including urban air pollution. We advise on emissions reduction schemes such as clean air zones.
Who our barristers act for
Our barristers act for the full range of clients in this area, including developers and industrial operators, central government and local authorities, government agencies, interest groups and environmental NGOs.
Where our barristers act
Our barristers appear in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, public inquiries, Development Consent Order (DCO) inquiries and before Parliamentary Bill Committees.
