Our firm works intensely on the discussion and review of environmental impact studies and declarations, and on administrative claims and judicial actions in the context of the Environmental Impact Assessment System. We advise our clients in the analysis of, and compliance with, the applicable environmental regulations, as well as in sanctioning procedures initiated by regulatory authorities, such as the Environmental Commission, the Electricity and Fuels Commission, and the Health Authority.
Our attorneys have played an important role in environmental contingencies that have resulted from an increasing number of disputes and new environmental regulations in connection with industrial, mining, agriculture and retail projects.
This area of our practice provides counsel in the application of the General Environmental Law 19,300, the Sanitary Code and supplemental regulations to both. Particularly relevant has been the application of both Law 19,253 on Protection, Fostering and Development of Indigenous Peoples, and ILO Convention 169, the Indigenous and Tribal Peoples Convention.
