Zoning and environmental law

The lawyers in the zoning & environmental team provide advice in areas where local authority and government rules influence real estate. This is the case with zoning plans or exemptions, environmental permits, environmental law, soil, air and water quality-issues, protection of nature, land policy and development, expropriation, municipal preferential rights, compensation for loss and planning blight.
