Hugh James has built up a team of environmental law experts and has had unrivalled success in applying the law to protect the environment.
Environmental solicitors at Hugh James are specialist lawyers who fight for local residents suffering from odour nuisance at their homes. We represent clients on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis in the pursuit of injunctions to prevent the nuisance from occurring in the future, and compensation to recognise the interference and disruption suffered in the past.
Typically odour nuisance claims are against the site owners and/or operators of the facility that is causing the odour.
Odour nuisance can have a real affect on your standard of living. Clients tell us that they are forced to keep their windows and doors closed because of odour, are unable to use their gardens and on some occasions are forced to leave their property. Many feel embarrassed when they have visitors because of the odour.
The majority of our cases involve an odour nuisance. Some cases also include other allegations of nuisance such as pests or noise. We have acted for thousands of residents who complain that the odour from various sites affects them in their own homes.
We are one of the UK’s leading specialists in the field of environmental law and one of only a handful of firms in the country with the knowledge and expertise to successfully conduct environmental claims. We represent large communities right through to the individual with clients located throughout England and Wales.
All environmental claimant compensation cases are dealt with by a dedicated team of environmental solicitors headed by partner Neil Stockdale. Our environmental personnel keep up to date with legal developments that affect the work and together we have built up many years of experience in the field. We pride ourselves on the fact that we provide the same efficient friendly service to all clients large or small.
