Environmental Law

The environment is a natural ecosystem that contains every single living creature on Earth, global natural forces, and a delicate balance between all of them. As humans continue to exploit the planet for natural resources, this fragile ecosystem grows increasingly precarious. Government bodies in countries on every continent have been working towards viable solutions to reverse the damage, all of which involve manoeuvring complex socio-economic, geographical, and political hurdles. Producing long-term strategies to combat environmental degradation is a multifaceted challenge, beginning with sustainable sources of energy, clean water, and reduced greenhouse gas emissions. In the last few decades, environmental activism has taken bold strides to preserve natural habitats from industrial activities like mining, oil fracking, and deforestation. These battle continue to be fought in courts and tribunals across India.

Environmental Law and Policy is an important facet of the legal ecosystem since it has wide-ranging ramifications on all aspects of life and law. Striking an important balance between development and growth while maintaining the ecological balance becomes crucial. With serious global environmental concerns revolving around climate change, protection of biodiversity and natural disasters, our team feels strongly about environmental law and policy, and we have had the opportunity to represent parties before various forums.
