Tim Green for DWF: good news for companies and their officers


In an article written as a guest of solicitors DWF, Tim Green provides a guide to a recent Court of Appeal decision that has important consequences for companies and their officers facing restraint and confiscation in respect of environmental offending.

The judgment in R v Powell and Westwood [2016] EWCA Crim 1043 suggests a significant and welcome narrowing of the scope for confiscation in environmental enforcement. Powell and Westwood is thus essential reading for environmental lawyers.
