Environmental Law and Energy.

The fields of environmental law and energy are a permanent trend in the legal landscape, of which both European Union and domestic policies create the prerequisites. At the same time, issues in the field of environment and energy must not remain foreign to anyone, neither at the level of business activity nor at a personal level. LINKLaw lawyers have extensive and unique experience in the field of legal consultation regarding all major environmental legal issues, including the application of European Union and national law regulations, in applying for the necessary environmental protection permits, and in resolving issues related to environmental pollution, greenhouse gases, waste, and environmental liability, including disputes.

Our lawyers have advised several Estonian industrial and mining companies for many years, as well as companies in the waste sector. We advise both energy and network companies in implementing various projects and resolving disputes.

We advise and represent clients in, among other things, the following:
  • matters related to the application, issuance or refusal of environmental protection permits (including integrated environmental permits, mining permits, waste permits) and their amendment or revocation;
  • environmental fees, including the calculation and reporting of environmental fees;
  • environmental protection, including the establishment of nature conservation areas and the acquisition of properties under environmental protection;
