Our Environmental Team provides advice and support on a range of environmental compliance, management and other operational matters, dealing with risks and liabilities for clients in Scotland, the UK and internationally.
Keeping up to date and complying with the legislation and guidance issued by a range of regulatory bodies - which includes the EU, UK and Scottish Governments, the Food Standards Agency, HSE and SEPA - is an on-going challenge for most businesses. It often seems that nothing can be done without some regulation or potential liability impacting upon it.
To make matters worse, policy makers and advisers seem to focus on the problems, rather than finding business-friendly solutions. At Davidson Chalmers Stewart we take a different approach. In addition to simply identifying the key issues, our experienced team of commercially-minded specialists provides practical and innovative solutions. Our clients include small to medium enterprises, the public sector and plcs.
Our aim is to make effective liability management and compliance as easy and cost effective as possible.
The team is well-known for its expertise in dealing with compliance and management issues in a range of sectors including agricultural, waste and resources, industrial, technology, energy and construction. We provide advice on waste, environmental permitting, water law and defending prosecutions for various offences.
