BBH provides advice on all matters of national and European waste and waste disposal law, including soil protection law.
In addition to the purely waste law-related questions (waste treatment, disposal obligations, land filling, waste export and transport) we also specialise in all closely related areas. Since waste disposal is a service of public interest, these areas include municipal law (municipal cooperation, ordinance law) and communal industries law as well as fee law, public procurement law and also air pollution law, which is of particular relevance for the waste processing sector.
Waste disposal law often involves the restructuring of municipal companies – a process which typically gives rise to numerous questions relating to corporate and tax law.
Our clients in the circular economy and waste sector include, among others, municipalities as well as municipal and private disposal companies. We also provide comprehensive advice on matters of waste disposal to power plant operators and investors in industrial parks.
