The Company:

Starting in 1994 we were created with a mission to translate complex laws into plain English for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, providing expert, relevant information every time. Specialising in both subscriptions and as consultants, we cut through legal jargon in the following legislation areas: Environmental ; Health & Safety ; Energy and Planning.

An opportunity has arisen to join our established business and help take us to the next level. We have a 22 year track record in environmental and safety publishing and consultancy, with new products targeting energy and planning markets. Working throughout the UK, our client portfolio ranges from individual consultants to household names.

Our mission statement grows every year. We started out to simplify environmental legislation, and now cover safety and planning too. We used to do a handful of legal registers, now we've expanded our consultancy to cover all aspects of legal compliance. We even do Roadshows and webinars! We're looking forward to seeing where we go next, and would love for you to join us!
