Environmental Laws and Policies in Pakistan

Top Law Firms in Karachi PakistanWe are one of the Pakistan’s leading environmental law firms. Unlike many firms, we have a standalone environment group – not a team that is an add-on to a real estate, planning or energy practice.

Our approach is practical and commercial.  We help our clients assess risk and avoid problems. Where they do have problems, we help solve them. Where damage is inevitable, we strive to limit it, with particular emphasis on protecting reputation and, when necessary, individuals.

We usually work with our clients to avoid litigation. But when we can’t avoid it, our combination of in-depth commercial understanding and criminal advocacy know-how makes us a formidable force. We also have an experience of the appeals system and judicial review.

In non-contentious areas, our environment lawyers do a wide variety of ‘pure’ environmental work, as well as advising on risk assessment and apportionment in corporate, property and financing transactions. They also work closely with our specialists in the areas of planning, energy and International law.

Our clients include European and US investors in the Pakistan, government departments and agencies, local authorities, banks, investment funds, landowners, utility operators, property companies, landfill operators, professional bodies and companies from many other sectors, including manufacturing, waste, chemicals, construction, house building, rail, mining, quarrying, oil and energy.
