Environmental Litigation

Our specialists provide comprehensive advice and manage international environmental litigation and dispute resolution across numerous jurisdictions worldwide.

With our strong sector knowledge, we combine environmental and litigation expertise to advise our clients in complex civil, criminal and administrative disputes and proceedings, expert determinations and arbitrations. In addition, our lawyers advise on public international environmental laws. 

We regularly advise on environmental indemnity and warranty disputes, third party civil actions and managing relationships with Governmental authorities.

Our environmental and litigation specialists also advise on administrative law matters, including judicial review (and equivalent) and have been successful in challenging environmental regulators on inappropriate use of, or interpretation of, their powers.
