Environmental Law

Contrary to the previous marginal focus on the regulation of the environment, in these days this regulation influences the operation and sustainability of the entirety of business branches. This rapidly developing regulation of business is, to a large extent, accepted on the EU level and is either a result of the failure of companies in managing their impact on the surrounding area or, on the other hand, it is connected to their successful programmes and extends the application of originally voluntary standards to the whole economic sectors. This regulation is particularly prone to a massive breach by companies that are usually all the more surprised by extraordinarily high penalties.

How we can help you:

  • Environmental due diligences of own or purchased companies.
  • Waste management and extended responsibility of producers (product take-back).
