ENVIR­ON­MENT­AL LAW AND POL­LU­TION CON­TROL LAW

Envir­on­ment­al law cov­ers sev­er­al cross-sec­tion­al areas of pub­lic law. This par­tic­u­larly includes pol­lu­tion con­trol law, water law, recyc­ling and waste law, nature con­ser­va­tion law and soil pro­tec­tion law.

Pol­lu­tion con­trol law primar­ily con­cerns pro­tec­tion against air and noise pol­lu­tion in install­a­tions sub­ject to licens­ing and oth­er struc­tures, espe­cially traffic routes. In water law, the key issues are meas­ures for water pro­tec­tion and the arrange­ment of water law-related uses. Recyc­ling and waste law is defined by com­plex pre­ven­tion, recov­ery and dis­pos­al. Soil pro­tec­tion law, which serves to safe­guard and restore soil func­tions, inter­sects with many oth­er areas of law such as water law (con­tam­in­a­tion of bod­ies of water), waste law (sites of tox­ic waste depos­its), and nature con­ser­va­tion law (land­scape con­ser­va­tion, agri­cul­tur­al land use).

We offer advice to private indi­vidu­als, busi­nesses and com­munit­ies both on pre-planned uses and in the case of judi­cial enforce­ment.
