Environmental protection

As a result of continually growing ecological awareness of the society and the legislator, environmental law is an increasingly developed branch of the law. Entrepreneurs, who are planning to commence capital-intensive investments should begin with the evaluation of environmental requirements and risks related to the undertaking.

 

We offer complete legal counselling services covering environmental protection laws. We support Clients who are executing investment projects, capital transactions and acquisition (sale) of assets. We remain at your unlimited disposal also in the course of carrying out current commercial operations which affect the environment.

 

Our legal assistance begins with in-depth identification of environmental risks. We suggest implementation of optimum and verified preventive measures which preclude occurrence of violations. Whereas, in crisis situations we recommend corrective action scenarios that will contribute to protect the Client’s interest to the fullest possible extent.

Focus on issues related to environmental protection at a sufficiently early stage of the project or investment execution is essential. We support our Clients in selecting optimum legal solutions – beneficial for the company and safe for the environment.
