Charles Morgan

SIX PUMP COURT (Chambers of Stephen Hockman QC)


Charles Morgan’s principal areas of practice are environmental law and commercial property law. He has a special interest and expertise in all areas of water and water industry law which have led to appearances in a huge variety of courts and tribunals all over England and Wales including the Magistrates Court, planning inspectors, the Crown Court, the Technology and Construction Court, the Administrative Court, the Court of Appeal, the House of Lords and the Supreme Court and many others in between. He also has extensive experience of areas of waste law, in particular the WEEE régime (he has appeared in both of the only two reported cases). He is equally confident in addressing public law and private law issues, which often arise together in environmental disputes. Whilst a member of the Attorney-General’s Regional Panel Charles represented the Environment Agency in numerous important regulatory appeals before planning inspectors as well as advising upon all aspects of the Environment Agency’s functions in relation to the aqueous environment. He also represented a large number of other manifestations of central government, in particular Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs in the VAT And Duties Tribunal. He has always acted for local authorities and continues to do so, mainly in relation to compulsory purchase and compensation cases and other areas of environmental and property law. Charles’ earlier career provided a thorough grounding in many aspects of Chancery commercial work including building and engineering contracts, insolvency, banking, insurance and sale of goods which render him an unusually versatile practitioner capable of recognising, understanding and advising fully upon all aspects of the real-life multi-faceted situations which affect businesses, individuals and public bodies. Charles has been since 1992 a Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Arbitrators and has extensive experience of commercial arbitration and mediation, particularly in the fields of construction/engineering and property law.
