Green Valley


A specialist law firm with a track record of problem solving and delivering environmental law solutions to public and private sector organisations. 

The climate emergency and the biodiversity crisis continues to be a central issue for regulators and policy makers, both in the UK and globally.  The result is that all parties dealing with real estate, from investors to developers to occupiers, are increasingly coming under scrutiny to ensure they meet their environmental obligations.  This isn't going away.  In fact, the pace of change is increasing especially in relation to net-zero and the protection and restoration of ecology.  

Our specialist environment team has advised both central and local government clients on environment issues, as well as private companies.   Our lawyers work seamlessly with specialists in the built environment to provide expert advice on the latest technical developments and how to build these into your wider real estate and planning projects, working with you to  mitigate the risks and costs associated with your environment and climate change strategies and ensure that our legal structures deliver realistic but aspirational outcomes. The team forms part of our wider ESG group, which is committed to delivering pioneering environmental initiatives.
