Practice Areas

Health & Safety, Planning & Environmental Law


Health and Safety

Over the past ten years Health and Safety Legislation has become considerably more onerous and compliance more rigidly implemented. This has come about as a result of additional and more complex legislation and the establishment and funding of the Health and Safety Authority. In the advent of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (Construction) Regulations 2013, it is inevitable that we will continue to operate in a more tightly regulated regime.

Our Health and Safety specialists can advise on all aspects of compliance, and defence of prosecutions.

Our specialist in Health & Safety Law is Malcolm Fraser.

Planning & Environmental Law

The areas of planning, waste management and environmental law are increasingly subject to the regulatory frameworks agreed and adopted at EU level. We at Hussey Fraser have extensive experience in the application of these frameworks in Ireland.

We have acted in large and complex challenges to the decisions of the planning authorities and other state bodies up to and including Judicial Review and Supreme Court challenges. In addition we have represented clients in areas including the compulsory purchase of property, foreshore licencing and the licencing of the handling and disposal of waste.

Our specialist in Planning and Environmental Law is Simon Fraser.
