Stephen Shergold is the legacy head of the Environment and Safety team in London and is a partner in Denton’s Energy Practice. Specializing in environment and health and safety law, Stephen advises clients on incident response, day-to-day compliance matters and liability risk management. These issues are relevant to clients on an operational level and also in the context of projects and transactions, reflecting this, Stephen’s practice is an even balance between both. He regularly advises on pollution liability regimes, process authorizations and environmental permitting, waste law, renewable energy law, international climate change mechanisms, resource efficiency mechanisms, nuisance and negligence, habitat protection, health and safety law and product liability. Stephen’s practice has a particular focus on the waste, oil and gas (upstream and downstream), mining, land remediation, clean-tech, insurance, and power sectors. In addition to advising private companies, Stephen has specific expertise in drafting regulatory frameworks and statutory instruments in both the EU and emerging markets.
