We provide specialized advisory legal support to industries, constructors, real estate proprietors and developers, as well as to the official national authorities (like the Technical Chamber of Greece and the Greek Ministry of Environment and Energy), on environmental law issues, such as for the special legal regime of some islands (Patmos, Hydra, Zakynthos, Marathonissi, Ios, Rhodes) or for finding legislative solutions with regard to sensitive ecosystems and wetland habitats.
We are involved in complex Environmental Impact Assessments (EIAs), while we have contributed to the resolution of serious disputes over major private sector projects (amusement parks, housing development, etc.), as well as renowned concession cases with complex infrastructure issues related to the environment and urban planning.
We are also experienced in dispute resolution regarding cultural heritage protection and licensing (also in combination with real estate development), before administrative authorities and courts, including the Central Archaeological Council (CAC) and the Central Council for Modern Monuments.
