Environmental Law

We can provide counseling and litigation services in environmental issues, performing the evaluation of environmental practices, conducting legal due diligence in the sale or purchase of assets and representing our Clients before government control bodies and the Judiciary.

In the legal-environmental sphere, we develop consulting projects and conduct legal due diligence in companies of various sectors, including agribusiness, mining, energy, waste management and sanitation, among others.

The members of TMBJ’s environmental team have vast experience in the assessment and management of risks and contingencies, being highly qualified to provide counseling in their prevention, mitigation or solution.

In the course of legal due diligence projects, and apart from the legal analysis of operational risks, we carefully analyze all of the environmental and regulatory licenses needed in the business sectors of the target company, so as to advise our Clients on the possible consequences of any failure in obtaining all due authorizations.

We offer services in administrative and judicial litigation, in highly complex civil and criminal inquiries or lawsuits, providing guidance on the ideal ways to conduct the defense and negotiating the Terms for the Adjustment of Conduct (“TACs”) with environmental agencies and Public Prosecutors.

We understand that undesired environmental events can do serious damage to a company’s image and have serious consequences to its operations; for that reason, legal counseling in this field is among our top priorities.
