The Environment team of Allen & Overy offers stand-alone and complex transactional advice in all major areas of environmental, health and safety law at both a domestic and international level. The team is known for its ability to work cross practice and cross borders, thus transcending the traditional practice differentiation.
Our experts are known for their broad expertise and their ability to join forces with our specialists in all sectors, whether this is the energy and industrial sector (including renewables, offshore and onshore wind parks), infrastructure, oil & gas, aviation, agri/food or technology/media/telecommunications sector.
Environmental compliance and liability issues are part of everyday life for most businesses, even if they are not engaged in evidently polluting or hazardous activities. Our advisory work includes spatial planning and zoning issues, transaction related environmental work, work relating to the increasing use of criminal law sanctions for enforcing environmental legislation, project stewardship (including WEEE, RoHS and REACH) and circular economy (waste/feedstock) issues.
Our truly integrated global network consists of more than 60 environmental law experts, which gives us, unlike rival firms, the advantage of being able to put Dutch environmental law into an international perspective and align it with local law, and vice versa. By staying abreast of the latest environmental initiatives and legislative developments, working closely with our integrated global network and our Tier 1 Energy team, we are able to guide our clients successfully through the regulatory jungle. Our clients include large U.S., EU and multi-national corporations with (industrial) operations in the Netherlands.
