Charles Morgan has been in practice at the Bar since 1979. For the past 30 years he has practised in areas of environmental law with a particular emphasis on both public and private law aspects of water and water industry law, in which context he has appeared before courts and tribunals at all levels from the Magistrates Court and Government Inspectors to the House of Lords and the Supreme Court. Having previously served as Treasury Counsel on the Environment Agency panel for 15 years he now acts principally for water and sewerage undertakers, water level management organisations, commercial enterprises, property developers and landowners. His geographically widespread practice also covers contaminated land, statutory nuisance and waste (including WEEE, in which field he has appeared in both of the only two reported cases) and is complemented by his longstanding experience in commercial property law and the law of compulsory purchase and compensation. He is an active legal author and lecturer and contributes material to Garner’s Environmental Law and the Journal of Water Law.
