The Environmental Law Practice has many years of experience in providing comprehensive advice in matters of international, European and Polish environmental protection law. The Polish Environmental Law Practice is led by Agnieszka Skorupińska, a Polish qualified advocate with eleven years of advisory experience in environmental law.
Lawyers working at the Environmental Law Practice advise clients on regulatory issues, investment projects, environmental aspects of real property transactions, mergers and acquisitions, as well as funding processes. They also successfully represent clients in administrative and court proceedings concerning environmental protection law.
Clients of the Environmental Law Practice include companies from the waste management, energy sectors, including the heat, mining, chemical, manufacturing, construction, FMCG, electronic and electrical equipment, water supply and sewerage, renewable energy sources, automotive, clothing and food sectors.
What distinguishes our Environmental Law Practice in the marketplace, besides its unique and versatile experience, is also an open mind for innovative service solutions. For instance, we like to co-operate with environmental and technical advisors, and in many cases we deliver package solutions to our clients, where environmental or technical advisors are retained as subcontractors and CMS co-ordinates the entire work (one-stop shop). We also have a very good track record of cooperation with local environmental protection authorities in various regions of Poland (this concerns, in particular, Province Marshals and Regional Environmental Protection Directors).
The Environmental Law Practice has been distinguished in Band 2 of the Chambers legal directory 2019 and in the law firm listing of the leading Polish daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita.
The Polish Environmental Law Practice is part of the CEE Environmental Law Practice, which covers the following other countries: Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Ukraine. The CEE Environmental Law Practice is headed by Agnieszka Skorupińska.
