Overview

We participate in the structuring of projects involving the potential of causing pollution or environmental impact. We provide legal advice to clients from the time of the legal audit during the project implementation and environmental licensing process all the way to the actual operation of the project. 

CRISIS MANAGEMENT
Part of our job is to solve conflicts through innovative solutions that go beyond traditional litigation, thereby meeting the needs of the business and reaching the client's objectives.

ENVIRONMENTAL LITIGATION
We represent our clients in high-stakes and complex judicial and administrative proceedings, preparing pleadings and negotiating the terms of consent decrees with environmental agencies and the Public Prosecutor's Office. 

IDENTIFICATION, RISK ASSESSMENT AND MANAGEMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL LIABILITIES
We identify and assess risks associated with environmental liabilities during due diligence for mergers and acquisitions, sale of assets, securing of financing, and access to capital markets. 

CLIMATE CHANGE
Our team has experience in legal due diligence involving emission reduction projects and in drafting contracts for the acquisition of rights to voluntary or certified emission reductions under the Clean Development Mechanisms (CDM).

BIODIVERSITY
We provide environmental consulting and litigation services throughout this process: risk assessment due to the use of biodiversity components and adequacy and regularization of processes.
