UK: Meet The Team – Spotlight On Our Environment And Safety Team
Last Updated: 5 November 2015

The Dentons Environment and Safety team is ranked by both Chambers and Legal 500 as one of a small handful of leading practices in the UK. We are ranked in the top five environment practices UK-wide by Chambers.

We are experts in environmental and safety law. Our key strength lies in the breadth of our specialist practice. Our market-leading UK Environment and Safety team advises Governments, regulators and businesses. We draft legislation and assist regulators in the enforcement of that legislation by writing regulatory guidance, training local authority officers and advising on enforcement. At the same time we act for businesses, advising on environmental and safety compliance and defending clients in connection with regulatory investigations and prosecutions. We carry out environmental and safety due diligence and produce specialist contractual drafting on a daily basis. All of our environmental and safety lawyers are full-time specialists in these areas, and our clients benefit from the depth of regulatory experience which they bring.

Head of the Environment and Safety team Stephen Shergold commented on recent events in the automotive sector:

"The automotive industry is one facing a wide variety of environmental challenges. Following the investigation by the US Environmental Protection Agency, the current issue with nitrogen oxide emissions will be closely examined by regulators in Europe and across the globe. This will lead to a seismic shift in the way in which the automotive sector is reviewed by regulators and potentially far-reaching legislative changes".
