Walker Morris LLP is ‘emerging as a key team in the region for environmental law issues’ led by Alison Ogley on the civil side and Stuart Ponting for criminal matters; they joined in 2017 from Kings Chambers and DLA Piper UK LLP respectively. Clients praise Ogley for her ‘welcoming yet pragmatic and forthright style with no posturing; she has an excellent knowledge of the field, provides sound and honest advice, and has outstanding communication skills’. Ponting is ‘very easy to work with’. Recent highlights include advising Valeo Foods on compliance and contamination issues following its acquisition of Big Bear Confectionary, The Lindum Snack Company and Candy Plus, defending Darrington Quarries in proceedings relating to plans to extend an existing quarry, and assisting MVV Umwelt with the contamination and flood risk issues related to the Dundee & Angus Waste Treatment Project. Commercial Estates Group, Taylor Wimpey and FCC Environmental are also clients. Andrew Williamson is now a consultant with the firm.
