Environmental, planning & regulatory

Urbanisation and land prices, pressure from intense regulation, and political and economic uncertainty are just some of the challenges facing investors and developers bringing major development projects and infrastructure to market. Our team of international environmental, planning and regulatory lawyers has been helping clients to successfully deliver projects for over 25 years.

We advise corporates of all sizes, public authorities and family offices. Because of our years of experience, we bring novel solutions and find angles to make sure projects can progress and materialise successfully – even in the most challenging of circumstances.

Our clients trust us to deliver. Our advice spans the entire project life cycle from initial planning permission and approval procedures through to construction and operation - including compliance and regulatory obligations for many highly regulated industries in which we work. Infrastructure projects and major developments such as airports and inland ports, sports stadia, healthcare facilities, rail and high-value residential and commercial real estate projects are what we do.

We advise public and private clients from the acquisition of land, through to the construction and management of a built asset, as well as defending against claims from third parties.

Environmental and sustainability considerations are critical in our world, as well as to our clients. They benefit from our extensive expertise in environmental impact assessments, environmental protection and regulation, and the recycling of contaminated sites. In addition, we advise on the design of models for inter-municipal cooperation and public-private partnerships.

Combining our understanding of our clients and their projects with our sector and local knowledge, we make projects happen.
