Environment Agency Investigations

The Environment Agency is responsible for protecting the environment and ensuring that business practices do not have a detrimental impact on the local area. The body also works to promote sustainable development and it works closely with central government to achieve its aims, reporting to the department for environment, food and rural affairs.

If the agency believes that a company’s working practices are harming the environment - perhaps through pollution of a body of water or the improper disposal of waste - it can investigate, set fines, issue enforcement and prohibition notices, suspend and revoke licences, and change licence conditions.

If the Environment Agency is looking into your company’s processes or you are at the risk of prosecution, JMW’s expert solicitors can defend you and minimise damage to your firm and its reputation.
