Administrative Law

Administrative law regulates matters of public administration, such as zoning plan changes, the application for integrated environmental permits, and compulsory purchase.

An order subject to a penalty, imposed on the grounds of breach of regulations attached to permits or the Buildings Decree, is also part of it. Our administrative law professionals represent both private individuals and public and semi-public authorities.
