Urban development & environment


Building permit
Local urban development plan
Risk prevention plan

We support our clients in defending their land-use authorisations and more generally, the ability to build on their property.

We act in disputes over building and development permits, and other land-use authorisations.

We have developed specific expertise with regard to natural risk prevention plans (PPRN). In these instances, we develop a strategy that combines the firm’s and its partners’ various resources (taxation, high-profile litigation, joint proceedings and class actions) to defend our clients’ interests, in both individual and joint lawsuits.
