What clients say about us
Mayer Brown’s approach to Environmental Management throughout the project has been substantial and the knowledge about the site itself was invaluable to Careys Civil Engineering for delivering a high quality job. The consistently professional manner in which environmental concerns were addressed was second to none. Their collaborative, open door approach has ensured we have been able to work together and achieve a high environmental standard across site.
I have used Mayer Brown’s services over a period of many years and have always found them to be very professional, knowledgeable and innovative when it comes to resolving today’s highways issues. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them

I have worked with Gavin Toogood and Mayer Brown on a number of projects and can highly recommend the professional service. On one scheme in Colwell, IW Gavin designed a scheme which saved the client money and time by coming up with a cost effective solution to the Council's highways concerns. His work enabled the application to be granted in a timely manner. The client was delighted!
Enormous thanks to Gavin and Mayer Brown on sorting out my EA licence on a sewage system that is servicing a population of 29. The septic tank needed to be upgraded following an EA inspection and the resulting work involved pumping a 400 metre run of pipe to a running waterway in an environmentally sensitive area. The system required an EA licence and the sale of the property was dependant on the licence being granted. This had been hanging over me for a while and after battling with the EA paperwork for a week and making no progress I was given Mayer Brown’s name and Gavin took over the whole problem. The licence was granted quickly and efficiently. Enormous thanks to Gavin.
