Regulation / Environmental Law

In recent years, environmental law has been having a significant impact on corporations and businesses in Israel.

This field, which is characterized by dynamism, extensive regulations and complexity, alongside steadily increasing administrative and criminal enforcement, requires relevant and tight legal counseling in order to ensure that the business activities of those corporations and businesses maintain compliance with the latest regulations.

 

Our environmental law practice has extensive and in-depth expertise in this field. Our team provides legal advisory services to leading companies in the economy and to international corporations operating in Israel in relation to environmental aspects of such industries as plastic, textiles, water desalination, sewage treatment, transportation, real estate and energy (gas, electricity and renewable energy).

 

The legal services we provide to our clients in this field include a full complement of legal counseling, ongoing assistance and representation in relation to all commercial, civil, administrative and criminal aspects of environmental issues, including representation of clients before the Ministry of Environmental Protection, the Water Authority, water and sewage corporations and additional authorities.

 

We provide ongoing legal advice to our clients on such issues as water pollution, solid contamination, sewage, electric and electronic equipment waste, recycling, business licensing proceedings and other operating and environmental permits, and we assist our clients with compliance with the requirements of environmental regulations applying to them and to their operations.

 

Additionally, our firm advises on mergers and acquisitions transactions, fundraising and financing, and provides advice on topics relating to environmental regulations and risk management, including due diligence examinations, negotiations and drafting of contractual provisions addressing the division of risks between parties during transactions and thereafter.
