B P Collins LLP fields an environmental law team that is 'very strong indeed', with clients singling out practice head Alex Zachary as 'very thorough and will stick to his guns where required'. The cross-practice team has extensive experience in all stages of the waste cycle, acting for clients in waste management, renewables and efficiency, as well as for waste-to-energy clients involved in renewable energy projects. In an illustration of the practice's track record in the waste management sector, Craig Williams acted for PB Donoghue in a £3m claim for damages arising from or JV/management/licence agreements made with an ex-HGV driver. Other recent highlights include advising Biffa on the acquisition of Amber Engineering, a waste management business in south Wales, and assisting the same client with updated terms for its project involving the collection and disposal of garden waste. Also recommended are David Smellie, who regularly handles commercial contracts and corporate transactions related to the waste management and renewables sectors, and Alison Taylor, who handles high-value commercial lease transactions for environmental clients.
