Environmental law, along with land use and construction, are areas in which HPP is the leading provider of legal services in Finland. HPP has one of the largest dedicated environmental teams in Finland which specialises in all aspects of the environmental and construction sectors. Over several decades, we have developed innovative solutions to our clients’ environmental issues.
We have a deep understanding of the sector and our clients’ fields of operation, business and processes. Consequently, we represent clients from industrial and commercial property clients to public entities and trade organisations. Our clients include leading operators in the forestry, metal, chemicals, energy, food, waste management, logistics and mining sectors.
Typically, we assist our clients from the very beginning, starting with the planning stage of a project. We continuously keep track of legislation central to our clients’ interests including assisting them with monitoring their interests at the legislation drafting stage.
HPP has also assisted Finnish government departments and legislators in emerging economies with the drafting of their environmental law regime. In M&A, real estate and finance transactions, where environmental aspects and additional investments are of central importance, HPP is well-placed to assess and assign value judgment to risks and provide solutions taking environmental law issues into consideration.
