Greene & Greene Lawyer Appointed to Chair Environmental Association

Michael Batty, the head of the top ranked Dispute Resolution Department at Greene & Greene Solicitors in Bury St Edmunds, has been appointed to Chair the East Region Committee of UKELA – The United Kingdom Environmental Law Association.   The East Region encompasses Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, Suffolk and part of Northamptonshire. 

Founded in 1987 and with around 800 members, UKELA is a charity dedicated to working to improve the awareness and understanding of environmental law and to use the law to work for a better environment.   The Association promotes discussion, training and networking opportunities amongst those interested in environmental law.

Michael said: “I am delighted to be involved with the East Region Committee, which was established earlier this year. We held a successful seminar in Cambridge during March 2014 and have a very exciting joint seminar with the UK Section of PIANC (The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure) fixed to take place at the London Gateway Port in October, involving not only a host of excellent speakers but also a guided tour of the Port”. 

Many UKELA events are open to non-members as well as members and can be booked through www.ukela.org.  Michael can be contacted by e-mail at michaelbatty@greene-greene.com or by telephone on 01284 717414.  Further details about Greene & Greene can be found at www.greene-greene.com and via @greenegreenelaw.
