Environmental law lawyers

Are you working on the realisation of a real estate project? Our environmental law lawyer will assist you with all urban planning aspects in Flanders.

Our services are characterised by three terms: guiding - preventing - litigating. Confianz handles environmental law files for all of Flanders.

1. Guidance on permit applications

As environmental law specialists, we screen permit applications in order to avoid a procedure potentially becoming bogged down. This includes, for example, consultation with municipalities and advisory bodies, clearing objections from the neighbourhood and working with external experts such as a surveyor or architect.

Here you will find the different steps about applying for an environmental permit.

2. Assistance in case of refusal of environmental permit

Was your environmental permit refused? This does not mean that your project is at an end. Nor do you have to simply resign yourself to this. We can assist you with your defence.

What are your options when a licence is refused?

3. Objections and appeals

Our environmental law lawyer safeguards your interests and assists you with town planning disputes and proceedings for individually granted permits in Flanders. As an urban development lawyer, we can also assist you with appeals with the province and the Licensing Disputes Board.
