We have specialist solicitors in claims pursued under the Land Compensation Act relating to new or altered highways, airports and other public work and have sought judicial reviews of government and local authority decisions which threaten to adversely affect people’s homes and properties.
Additionally, we specialise in dealing with health impacts of environmental hazards, such as illness or injury caused by exposure to pollution, high magnetic fields or food contamination.
