Environmental Law

Increasingly, Environmental law issues appear directly or indirectly in a great number of matters handled by the firm.

Baño León frequently advises individuals, corporations and public agencies in all types of issues related to environmental law, such as, for example, closing proceedings, requests for licenses, declarations to categorize certain areas as “Sites of European Community Interest” or environmentally protected areas or the environmental obligations of providers of waste management services.

Among other matters, Baño León has defended successfully the interests of several companies against the withdrawal of their operating licenses obtaining compensatory damages and has challenged environmental plans for lack of sufficient evidence on the need to protect certain species.

Similarly, we represent several contractors hired by the public Administration whose services have a direct impact on the environment such as waste collection and used oils collection and recycling.
