Areas of expertise

Environmental law

Environmental issues are increasingly significant. All businesses and organisations have good reason to consider the importance of sustainability issues. At the same time, the environmental area is becoming increasingly regulated. With its expertise, MAQS can help clients navigate through these 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. MAQS emphasises working proactively so that our clients can adapt their businesses early on to the changed requirements.

MAQS is engaged by both private companies and public bodies and the structure of the matter thus depends on the client. 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 matters
  • 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.
