Practice notes

Catherine is a Principal Associate in the EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) team. Catherine specialises in non-contentious environmental and health and safety matters.

Catherine has extensive experience in advising on highly complex and specialised environmental issues. Chemicals related work is a particular specialism, including in respect of REACH, CLP (Classification, Labelling and Packaging of Chemicals) and the BPR (Biocidal Products Regulation). She routinely advises clients on strategic issues including Brexit, internal audits, responding to regulatory audits, dealing with customers and suppliers and potential disputes (including data sharing disputes).

She also advises on environmental permitting, waste, contaminated land, emissions and water-related issues. Catherine regularly provides EHS input into corporate and property transactions and due diligence exercises, including advising and providing drafting to allocate environmental liability. She routinely works with environmental consultants and manages multi-jurisdictional compliance projects (recent projects have included leading an international environmental permit review project for a chemicals manufacturer and an EU biocidal compliance project for an oil field service provider).

Catherine regularly speaks at conferences on EHS issues.
