Richard Buxton is a firm of lawyers (solicitors) based in Cambridge, England. We specialise in environmental work.
We say “Environmental and Public Law” as so much of what we do is about the way government, local authorities and public bodies make decisions which affect the environment. The quality of life (indeed, the very existence) of animals, plants and humans depends on those in authority to make good, lawful decisions.
We have particular experience in environmental impact assessment; related planning work; communication masts; nuisance, including aircraft-related and other noise work; nature conservation and water abstraction.
We have done many high profile cases in the domestic and European courts and have been front runners in seeing the European directive on environmental impact assessment properly implemented in the UK.
Please visit the site to find out who we are, what we do, and how one goes about our sort of work. There is an extensive reference section detailing cases we have done.
We cannot help everyone, but we have a lot of clients who would not have got anywhere but for persevering with the law.
