Expertise Practice Areas

Environmental Impact Assessment

We provide legal counsel and support during the various stages of the evaluation procedure of the environmental impact of plans and programmes, as well as of investment projects in different sectors of activity. We assist clients during the preliminary phase that defines the scope of the environmental impact assessment and often participate in technical teams in charge of the elaboration of Environmental Impact Studies (EIS).

The service that we provide to public and private entities during the subsequent stages of the respective administrative procedures is equally important, namely from the stages of public consultation and evaluation of results up to the issuing of the final decision (the DEI, Declaration of Environmental Impact). We also provide assistance during the respective project’s implementation phase by participating in monitoring procedures and by drafting reports on environmental conformity and environmental post-evaluation.

In the area of environmental impact assessment, the firm has led the field in the monitoring of projects for the construction of golf courses, hotels, tourism resorts, residential areas, shopping centres and industrial parks by providing support to technical teams and project developers to verify the project’s conformity with the environmental requisites and good practices set out in the legislation in force.
