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.
