George V. Maloney & Co. Solicitors’ involvement in the landmark cases of Maguire v Shannon Regional Fisheries Board and Shannon Regional Fisheries Board v Cavan County Council established the law in Ireland in relation to pollution discharges into waters as being a strict liability offence under the Fisheries Consolidation Act 1959.

Environmental law is a complex area and you need a firm willing and able to navigate you through it, and George V. Maloney & Co. Solicitors has the wealth of knowledge required to do this.

The regulating authorities (Environmental Protection Agency, Local authorities, Health and Safety Authority, Inland Fisheries Ireland, Department of Environment, Community and Local Government) enforce breaches of environmental law.  Their response to breaches may include issuing warning letters, statutory notices requiring action, threats to prosecute, and in cases of persistent or large-scale environmental law breaches, Court prosecution and Court orders.

Solicitors has a lifetime worth experience in providing environment law legal guidance and the protection of rights and interests of private individuals, businesses and local authorities alike on all matters concerning environmental law and practice in Ireland.
