Environment and Regulatory
Regulatory demands continue to broaden and deepen in response to international environmental, human rights and trade concerns, and present more and more compliance issues affecting both processes and products, as well as liability issues in business transactions.
We proffer well-grounded legal advice and counsel in connection with compliance issues, transactions, and disputes concerning environmental requirements and potential environmental damages.
Our advice encompasses the local remediation programs to national environmental policy regulations.
We cover all aspects of environment law, including:
Environment litigation and enforcement
Environment due diligence and transactional advice
Environmental compliance and regulatory advice
Environmental impact assessment and approval of energy, infrastructure, resource and development projects.
Environment management systems
Funding projects that have positive environmental or climate benefits
We have the competence to identify and assess potential environmental liabilities and manage responsibility for known and potential environmental risks. In achieving the objective to keep abreast, we closely track environmental policy, climate change and trade policy and regulatory developments.
Our environment litigation practice has engaged in disputes involving contaminants, for which evidence of adverse health effects and enforceable standards are changing rapidly. In litigation we represent clients relating to remediation of contaminated sites, compliance with environment laws, environmental insurance coverage, rights and obligations under environmental contractual indemnities, and environmental liabilities in bankruptcy.
