Environmental Claims

Forbes has significant expertise built up over a number of years representing clients facing allegations relating to environmental matters.

These cases are invariably complex, highly sensitive, often result in multi party actions and frequently involve matters of both criminal and civil proceedings. Often these cases involve a high degree of public and media interest and managing those elements and the client's overall business reputation forms an essential and integral part of our service.

Some recent examples of work our specialist lawyers have undertaken include:-

  • Representing a Public Sector Body facing claims from over 400 Claimants following exposure to noxious fumes and chemicals emanating from land owned by the client.
  • Representing a Building Company in relation to claims following exposure to chemicals from purchasers of their properties.
  • Representing a Public Sector Body relating to methane gas emissions from a former land fill site.
  • Representing a Building Developer in connection with claims from over 50 individuals relating to contamination from sewage as a result of flooding.
