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.

Share of widow in Property and inheritance rights of widow

A widow is indeed entitled to a share of the inheritance from the property which belonged to her deceased husband; but she would not be entitled to inherit anything from the property which belongs to her father-in-law, or any other blood relative of her deceased husband, absolutely regardless of whether she has married again or not, or whether she has off-spring or not.

The widow is entitled only to a percentage of the inheritance left behind by her deceased husband; 1/4th if they have no children from the marriage, and 1/8th  if the couple have children.

The best team of our lawyers always assist the clients to get their rights. We provide complete Free Legal Advice to widow woman as a Sadqa and Zakkat , for getting their Legal rights and getting their proper share in property of their deceased husband. Sometimes a Widow lady is unable to pay our professional Fees, we file her case without fees, thereafter they pay our fees as per their convenience.

Our Goal is to fight for the rights, therefore we always provide better ways to our clients to achieve their legal rights without any over burden of litigation costs.
