What we do
Our department advises on complex environmental projects, from the early planning stages, through to development and the building of the environmental infrastructure.
Our department possesses special expertise in litigating including advising on environmental criminal charges and cases. We are one of the few firms with experience in the planning and zoning aspects of environmental law.
Recent experience includes:
- Representing a significant player in the energy and infrastructure sector in pre-indictment hearing proceedings for alleged violations of the Business License Law and Water Law and Regulations. The hearing was successfully concluded, and following our intervention and representation, not only did the client avoid a criminal indictment, but it also obtained a temporary business license for operating one of its plants, despite prolonged delays on the part of the relevant regulatory bodies.
- Representation of the Givatayim Local Planning Committee in an array of environmental and planning proceedings.
