Environmental Law

It is now a well-established yet still-ongoing trend that issues of environmental responsibility are climbing higher and higher on both the public and government agendas.

Enforcement has been given a higher-priority and prosecution of offenders is becoming more frequent. Recently, the guideline sentences for Environmental offences were increased and such breaches can attract substantial financial penalties.

As an experienced environmental law barrister, I can provide the same kind of expert assistance and advice with all areas of environmental law (such as waste and water pollution) like most conventional environmental solicitors. As an experienced barrister, however, I am able to support an individual or organisation without the additional need for a solicitor.

Nuisance is another area of concern to many. Whether it be noise or some other cause, living with a nuisance can blight lives. I can assist in advising you about your particular circumstances and have dealt with many cases under section 82 of the Environmental Protection Act 1990, assisting those affected by a nuisance who feel they have not had the appropriate support and action from their Local Authority. Throughout the process I will ensure that you are well-informed about the process you are facing or the implications of the action being taken against you.

If you require advice from environmental lawyers or you wish to instruct me as your environmental barrister, please contact me on 07771 541449 or info@stuartjessopbarrister.co.uk.



I met Stuart when I was on the opposing side in a recent licensing appeal. Since that time Woods Whur have instructed him in matters, in the most recent of which he won and had costs awarded in our client's favour. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.
