Environmental protection is a major concern for the region’s governments. As a result, businesses operating here face a complex and disperse set of rules, established by a number of decentralized agencies. The professionals at BLP assist clients in managing their obligations and provide guidance during the design, development, and operational stages of their projects.
BLP has one of the top environmental practices in the region. We provide legal advice on issues involving compliance analysis, regulatory interpretation, licensing, administrative actions, constitutional and criminal litigation, among other environmental matters.
Although BLP attorneys work with a diverse array of clients affected by environmental concerns and regulations, much of BLP’s environmental practice relates to the development of major tourism, energy, infrastructure, and industrial projects. BLP attorneys who specialize in environmental, land use, and real estate, work together to meet our client’s needs for sustainable and successful projects. The team uses a multidisciplinary approach, regularly working with biologists, geologists, forest engineers, and professionals in other fields to fulfill our clients’ needs. BLP professionals also have cutting-edge experience in carbon offset projects, including Clean Development Mechanism initiatives.
