An integrated and crosscutting approach

Environmental law is a complex and multidisciplinary topic. The extensive experience of our professionals and the close cooperation of the firm’s departments, allows us to offer complete and cross-practice assistance.

The team assists clients through all administrative and regulatory steps, such as approval of characterisation and clean-up processes, issuance of new permits and relevant authorisations, including environmental impact assessment (EIA) and IPPC, renewals, updating or transfers of registration for BAT (Best Available Technology) reference documents, due diligence reports for environmental risk assessments and management, waste management audits and creation of specific organisational protocols and procedural models.

The department offers widespread expertise in environmental litigation in administrative or civil jurisdiction and supports clients and their advisors in criminal proceedings relating to environmental issues.

Workplace Health and Safety completes the range of our services, including the preparation of organisational charts with reference to the legal subjects in charge of workplace health and safety matters as well as due diligence reports, audits and legal assistance.
