Environmental law

Environmental issues play an increasingly key role, regardless of the industry and business in question. You have a team to help you that combines sound knowledge and extensive experience in all areas of environmental law.

We work in all aspects of environmental law. We can help you with everything from reviews relating to water rights to cases involving industries, incineration plants and wind farms. It may be a question of excavation or infrastructure projects. Or how environmental risks should be taken into consideration in a transfer of a company or the sale of a property. We also guide you along the right path when investing in infrastructure and in construction contracts and land development. Our environmental law specialists deal with water and environmental cases in court and are regularly involved in preventing and eliminating problems with regard to environmental law and risks when it comes to development, acquisitions and other types of project. We also participate in legislative work and assist industry associations with comments on proposals circulated for consultation and proposals for simplifications of rules.

Our clients include Swedish and international companies of all sizes as well as the State and municipalities.
