Legislation is constantly in motion, evolving or making way for new laws. The new environmental act will be introduced in 2021, which also means the introduction of the environmental plan. Many of the rules that are currently set at national level will soon be set at local level, which requires a different way of working and will lead to extra work for municipalities.
Against the background of this changing landscape, our experienced team supports and advises both municipalities and companies. Our lawyers share their knowledge with both groups through the ‘Environmental Law Expert Group’.
The Environmental Law team consists of specialised lawyers and supporting lawyers who have a thorough command of the broad field of environmental law. Together with our clients we look for sustainable solutions. Where necessary with support from other teams, such as Procurement Law, State Aid, Property Law and Corporate law.
