Environmental law

Environmental law is a rapidly evolving field of law generating numerous risks (not only reputational) for entities whose operations have an impact on the environment.

The frequently changing regulations governing protection and use of natural resources require businesses to continually monitor the regulations and comply with new legal requirements. Realizing the multiplicity of obligations imposed on entities impacting the environment, we offer businesses ongoing and ad hoc legal advice on environmental protection.

We take an individual approach to each case, reflecting the nature of the client’s business. We propose solutions limiting environmental risks. Depending on the expectations and the nature of the case, we cooperate with experienced engineers and environmental consultants. We recommend practical solutions to our clients’ needs.
