Business and environment
As one of the major industrialised nations worldwide, Germany needs reliable guidelines in the field of environmental law. We believe that natural resources, which underpin our society, do not conflict with economic prosperity.
Planning and projects
Planning laws govern the scope and the intensity of soil, nature and landscape utilisation. Our advisory services cover all questions associated with urban land use planning, regional planning and specialist planning as well as project management.
Products – market access & liability
Product law, which consists of complex, interdisciplinary regulations, is dominated by European legislation. We are familiar with the current legal requirements that apply to your products and continuously monitor the latest regulatory developments.
Utilities / waste management industry
The supply of electricity, heat and water and the disposal of waste or sewage are part of the existential necessities of our lives. We provide comprehensive advice on all legal issues in the utilities and waste management industry.
Compliance and organisation
In the Federal Republic of Germany, entrepreneurial responsibility has always been a cornerstone of the general business philosophy. With rising complexity of the legal framework, companies require highly specialised compliance advice that is tailored to specific regulatory areas.
Real estate industry
Real estate involves much more than just transactions, due diligence and commercial lease agreements. We assist real estate companies and project developers in all questions relating to the public law framework governing property construction, operation and demolition.
Mining and commodities
As a country rich in raw materials, Germany has a centuries-old mining tradition. We advise companies and mining authorities on all issues relating to the exploration, extraction and processing of mineral resources.
Climate protection and energy transition
Climate change is perhaps the biggest challenge of our time. We assist clients in all industries and of all sizes in questions of climate protection and the energy transition, specifically in regard of measures designed to protect against the consequences of climate change.
Legislation and standardisation
The legal framework governing environmental, planning and product law is becoming increasingly complex. We assist companies and trade associations in their legal and political evaluation of legislative processes and the development of technical standards.
