Environmental Law

Our firm’s Environmental Law Practice is one of the leading Israeli environmental law practices. We boast comprehensive knowledge in the domain of environmental regulation and the requirements therein, which have been subject to constant change in the past decade, and especially following Israel’s accession to the OECD, which requires report submission and publication regarding Israel's environmental performances and the implementation of environmental requirements. Our expertise leads our clients to a successful combination of optimal business conduct and compliance with the frequently changing laws and regulations, while advancing with every step forward in the field of environmental improvement.

We aid our clients in coping with an array of legal and regulatory matters touching upon the environment and climate changes. These are some of the environmental issues we are often involved with: water, all kinds of waste, air quality, hazardous materials, industrial and urban wastewater, contaminated soil, environmental aspects of design and construction, sludge, energy conservation and climate change, sea pollution, environmental aspects of offshore and land drilling, radiation, noise, recycling and recovery and many more.
