Urban planning & Environment

Back to Real Estate

Monaco is small, and its buildings naturally extend skywards or seawards. Urban planning and environmental issues are becoming increasingly crucial, especially given the high priority placed by His Serene Highness on sustainable development and environment protection.

We help property developers and owners manage their construction projects or real estate portfolios in compliance with urban planning regulations and the most stringent environmental standards and labels that exist in Monaco and in France.

We also advise and assist with any disputes relating to planning permission or to the State's exercise of a right of pre-emption or expropriation in the public interest.
