Especially industrial companies, but also builders are frequently faced with problems of environmental law. The contamination of land by hazardous waste, which is now regulated by the Federal Ground Protection Act (Bundes-Bodenschutzgesetz), as well as waste water discharge, water extraction, and the operation of emission-producing plants and waste disposal sites are typical of the problems our lawyers address on a regular basis. Experience shows that it is especially advisable in the field of environmental law to develop consensual solutions together with the environmental authorities. This is a defining feature of the consultancy services of Malmendier Legal.
