Environmental Law

Environmental Law has become one of the most important and continues to be one of the fastest growing legal specialties.

Environmental Law and its practice involves a detailed knowledge and understanding of the complex statutes and regulations which seek to protect the environment endangered by personal, commercial and industrial activities.

At Wolfe & Co. LLP we are conscious of the challenges facing our clients given the growth of Environmental Law in Ireland in recent years. In the light of increasing statutory controls the awareness of Environmental Law and compliance with legislation and regulations has become a high priority for Irish businesses.

We offer comprehensive advice on both contentious and non-contentious environmental and planning issues to both private and commercial clients. This  includes:

  •     assessing environmental concerns
  •     ensuring compliance with statutory regulations
  •     dealing with all aspects of environmental licensing and permits

Our work in this area extends to advising clients in the growth area of Alternative Energy to include the establishment of wind farms and the recently introduced building energy rating requirements.
