Environmental legal services

In environmental matters, it is important to ensure a safe course and solid ground to stand on. Our legal experts can help you understand the relevant operational limits and opportunities, and define your responsibilities as an operator.

Thanks to our pool of multidisciplinary experts, we can examine the environmental matters from a wider perspective and provide versatile and well-founded solutions. Our combination of the most experienced environmental lawyers and specialists in sciences and technology ensures that we are one of the top players in the field. Sweco’s experts in environmental law are specialised in both national and EU-level environmental legislation.

Our services include the following:

  • Appeals and responses. We prepare the appeals and responses necessary for the appeal process.
  • Legal counselling in the context of permit processes, for example.
  • Legal analyses. We determine the prerequisites for project implementation and product launch, and resolve issues regarding the interpretation and application of the law. 
  • In addition to this, we keep an eye on legislative changes, such as the obligations imposed by the REACH regulation, on behalf of our customers, and prepare legal overviews of approved and upcoming changes and essential guidelines issued by authorities.
