But environmental and nature conservation law is complex. National and European regulations change regularly, (European) politics encompass great environmental ambitions and the judiciary also regularly makes its voice heard.


Nysingh’s environmental law specialists are familiar with environmental law, the Soil Protection Act, state and regional water board and infrastructure law and the Nature Conservation Act. We know the current regulations well and we know in which areas the Environment Act is going to effect change. In addition, we closely monitor social and political developments so that we are able to provide you with practical advice. Not just regarding today’s issues, but also with regard to tomorrow’s challenges.
