- Law Firm
Our attorneys advice you on the law as it relates to public energy and electricity supply (market liberalisation, market access and basic services, grid connections, grid use and energy supply, energy trading, etc.) and energy law (renewable energies, compensatory feed-in remuneration, etc.). We prepare legal opinions for public authorities and companies in the energy sector and examine questions concerning general terms and conditions, contracts, permits, concessions for water construction projects (water rights concessions, construction and planning law) as well as pipeline construction projects (planning approval procedures, eminent domain procedures, special use concessions, construction and pipeline rights, formation of companies, co-ownership agreements) etc.
Our law firm supports private individuals, companies and public institutions in all areas of environmental law. This includes legal issues relating to environmental impact assessments, noise protection, immission protection, water pollution control and contaminated sites, inherited pollution, soil conservation, air pollution control, non-ionising radiation (high voltage lines, mobile telephone antennas), water pollution control as well as the law governing the protection of natural and cultural heritage.
We prepare and review private and public law contracts in the realm of energy and environmental law. Careful drafting of contracts and general terms and conditions is one of the best means of avoiding legal disputes and court proceedings. In the case of real estate transactions, part of what we do is to examine solutions in connection with contaminated sites and soil pollution.
We support you in all matters of energy and environmental law both in out-of-court negotiations and before conciliation authorities, administrative bodies of the municipalities and cantons, ordinary courts, special authorities (ElCom, ESTI, FOPH, Competition Commission, price supervisor, valuation commissions in eminent domain proceedings), the commercial courts or arbitral tribunals in Lucerne and throughout Switzerland.
