The Osborn Abas Hunt team is highly experienced across health and safety, environmental, and broader regulatory law affecting businesses in the UK and further afield.

The firm was founded in 2004 and since then we’ve cared as much about our clients’ success as they do. This is evident in our attention to detail, accessibility and in the results-driven service we provide.

We’re not just lawyers – we’re business people too. In each situation we ensure we understand what our clients’ objectives are. Rather than adopting any set piece approach, we identify the optimal strategy that’s right for them and their business in any given situation.

We treat clients as we ourselves would want to be treated – with honesty, professionalism and care – and we strive to make a positive contribution to the performance of our clients’ businesses.
