Environmental protection

Environmental protection is no longer a branch of law and has in recent years developed into a tangled jungle of national and Community standards. Once marginalised, it is now one of the important aspects of any economic activity, due to increasing awareness of the climate risks and the impact of the environment on everyone's comfort of living. Effective advice in this particular ecosystem requires not only knowledge of regulations, but also the standards of environmental bodies and practical know-how.
