How can Reed Smith help you?

Working with clients in and across jurisdictions around the globe, we can guide and advise you through the EHS aspects of every stage of your project and business life cycle. From due diligence on strategic acquisitions, to the planning and permitting required to bring projects to life, to assisting with ongoing EHS compliance (including with emerging legislation), sustainability, and environmental & social governance, we can support you in all aspects of your day-to-day business operations. Knowing your business and having an experienced team also means we are poised to help you manage the unexpected, whether it be incident response, regulatory investigations or environmental litigation.

We routinely counsel companies in a wide range of industries with deep experience in the technology, oil and gas, transportation, mining, metals & minerals, power, renewable & clean energy, manufacturing, chemicals, health care, pharmaceutical, commercial property, waste management, and food sectors. Our advice ranges from simple questions of regulatory or code compliance to complex criminal inquiries.

In particular, we are known for representing clients in multi-jurisdictional EHS regulatory reviews, particularly for multinational technology, energy and industrial clients operating across the globe. We are also widely recognised as the legal and regulatory counsel you call in case of a major incident, including for industrial accidents, business or reputational threats, and experienced counsel to facilitate global product recall activities.

Our network of EHS professionals spans more than 75 countries, and our lawyers are ranked as ‘leading individuals’ in legal directories with our practice acknowledged for its ‘excellent response times, sound business acumen and industry knowledge’ (Legal 500 UK 2019).
