As one of the first law firms to develop a globally integrated environmental law practice, Allen & Overy is able to provide both transactional and standalone advice in all the major areas of environmental and health and safety law at national, regional and international levels.
Environmental compliance and liability issues are now part of everyday life for most businesses, be they engaged in evidently hazardous activities or not.
Likewise, developments in the climate change arena are raising new challenges for the business community. Regulatory demands, however, continue to widen in response to increasingly international environmental concerns and throw up more and more compliance issues affecting both processes and products, as well as liability issues in business transactions. To steer successfully through this regulatory jungle requires specialist expertise on a global scale.
Allen & Overy’s environmental law experts advise on all aspects of environmental law and liability. We regularly advise clients on the management of cross-border due diligence and on contractual negotiations in relation to major international acquisitions, disposals and infrastructure projects.
