Chemicals Sector

We have advised clients in the Chemicals sector for 25 years, and have seen the sweeping changes brought about by global competition and legislative change in that time.

Our advisors have acted for a number of UK, European, North American and global players in the sector. We have assisted these clients to lobby the European Parliament, to acquire and dispose of shares, businesses and assets, to rationalise portfolios, to manage serious environmental and regulatory incidents and infractions on several continents, and to work towards long term environmental legacy management and site remediation objectives.

We have worked on the upgrading, closure and de–risking of dedicated waste disposal facilities, the recycling and re-use of wastes into fuels and feedstocks for energy generation and the revival of redundant assets into profit centres (eg the conversion of brine caverns to commercial underground gas storage facilities).

We have also advised on numerous site closure, dismantling and remediation schemes, with a view to either safe redevelopment for commercial and residential use, or a “fence, lock and manage” strategy to limit expenditures prior to disposal, obtaining planning consent or a property market upturn.
