Areas of expertise

Environmental law

All businesses and organisations have good reason to consider the importance of issues related to the environment and sustainability. At the same time, the environmental area is becoming increasingly regulated. At MAQS, you get assistance in navigating through these rules and regulations and find sustainable solutions.

We have significant experience with environmental law issues. Swedish environmental legislation is subject to constant change because it is heavily influenced by domestic and international politics. We emphasise working proactively so that at an early stage you can adapt your business to the changed requirements.

This is what we can assist you with

Whether you are a private company or a public body, you can turn to us. We assist with issues such as:

  • permit applications and notifications in accordance with the Environmental Code
  • day-to-day advice in connection with liability investigations
  • supervisory matters
  • environmental damages
  • transaction-related environmental issues

We often assist in sorting through and regulating liability issues prior to the acquisition or development of industrial areas.

Renewable energy

MAQS also monitors legal development on behalf of companies which work with technology for renewable energy. We have experience with, among other things, assisting our clients in connection with the establishment of, for example, wind power. In addition to traditional environmental law, these issues require expertise in the law governing property and easements, financing and collateral, and business associations.
