Whether its a favourite street tree or a an area of ancient woodland, many people have trees that they wish to protect. We have experience both of representing activists using direct action to protect trees, as well as protecting trees through legal processes such as Tree Protection Orders.
From fracking, to destructive infrastructure, to climate change, brave people across the country are taking a stand to protect the natural world. We recognise that the actions of activists are often all that stands between the preservation and destruction of the natural world. We assist activists at all stages, whether it is advising on the law in advance of an action, or dealing with any civil or criminal consequences of the action they take to protect the natural world.
As the destruction of the natural world has increased, so have the efforts of those who wish to profit from its destruction. Where they have encountered opposition to the destruction, they often use civil injunctions to silence and prevent protest. We have significant experience of representing nature defenders in injunction proceedings and in minimising any interference an injunction might have on peoples right to protest destruction and protect the natural world.
Rivers and waterways
Our current legal system fails to understand that water is sacred and water is life. We are committed to legally protecting our waterways and gaining greater rights for them. In addition, we also have experience of the legal issues for those who live on our waterways. So ether its preventing pollution or dealing with an aggressive and bureaucratic navigation authority, we can help.
