Environmental Liability

Business life in Germany is regulated by a dauntingly vast array of legal provisions. This is especially true when it comes to the field of environmental law.

Violation of provisions of environmental law can expose individuals, as well as companies and their management, to substantial restitution claims with a view to environmental damage that has occurred or damages incurred by others because of the environmental effects of plants and equipment. In addition and above all, this can have severe personal consequences under criminal and administrative law for the persons involved.

We use our experience to stand up for our clients when it comes to mounting a defense against such claims or accusations of personal culpability. We advise our clients in a preventative function in the area of environmental liability, for example, by helping them to establish an effective environmental compliance program.
