‘The Legal 500: Environment Country Comparative Guide’ aims to provide a pragmatic overview of environment law across a number of jurisdictions, addressing topics such as climate change, permits, environmental impact assessments and regulatory regimes for waste. Each chapter offers insight into the current environmental issues being faced in a particular country.

In their chapter, Michael and Stephen from Burges Salmon’s Environment team address environment laws and regulations applicable in the United Kingdom through a country-specific Q&A examining the primary regulatory authorities, transferring environmental permits, allocating liability for contamination of soil and groundwater, and much more.

The guide is free to access from The Legal 500 website and the chapter authored by Michael and Stephen can be accessed and downloaded via the button below.
