August & Debouzy advises various economic operators (water, mining, quarry, energy, transport, waste companies, etc.) on the law applicable to their activities having an environmental impact, regardless of whether or not they are part of a wider transaction calling for advice in other areas. We endeavour to provide the best legal solutions to control technological, health and environmental risks, while taking into account environmental tax issues.
At all stages of a project, August & Debouzy handles industrial regulation matters by advising on how to integrate environmental and health constraints into the management of these types of activities, in light of the most recent legislative changes.
We have specific expertise in the management of polluted sites and ground – particularly due to nuclear, chemical, steel or oil activities – and we advise our clients on the negotiation, drafting and implementation of contracts related to the transfer or shutdown of industrial activities (negotiations with administrative authorities, determining liability, etc.).
