The penalty for violating environmental standards can be very severe for entrepreneurs – the regulations provide not only for fines, but also for an order to limit or even stop operations. Effective protection against such consequences can be crucial to the operation of a business.
We know that the assessment of compliance with environmental requirements often requires specialist knowledge regarding law and science. Therefore, entrepreneurs are often helpless when confronted with the knowledgeable employees of environmental protection inspection authorities. Being aware of this, we represent our clients in inspection proceedings and in proceedings to determine responsibility for any violations of environmental standards. Where the situation requires it, we use expert support. We prepare appeals against administrative decisions and complaints to administrative courts.
Violation of environmental standards may have consequences not only under administrative law, but also under civil law. We provide legal services to clients who face claims of immission (nuisance), infringement of personal rights, as well as claims for damages.
The experience resulting from cooperation with entrepreneurs also allows us to represent environmental organizations and the neighbours of burdensome enterprises in proceedings aimed at limiting this type of activity and drawing consequences against such companies.
