Administrative & Environmental Law

The lawyer and administrative law

With legislation, regulations and their enforcement, the government exerts considerable influence over society and the economy. The administrative lawyers at Van Diepen Van der Kroef specialise in cooperating with public authorities in completing projects and investments, making policy and obtaining permits. But government bodies can also be adversaries in proceedings about the formulation of policy, refusal of permits and enforcement. For example, our lawyers advise and litigate on zoning and land-use plans, government enforcement and the sanctions they impose, revocation or refusal of permits and the forced closure of businesses.
