Environmental Protection

Gvozdiy & Oberkovych Law Firm keeps abreast of changes in Ukrainian environmental legislation, which contains many contradictions and inconsistencies, particularly in the sections regarding the implementation of projects by foreign investors in the spheres of energy or infrastructure. In addition, the firm's experts often advise international companies and specialized investment, or public agencies, working in the field of environmental protection, on issues of interpretation of the relevant provisions of Ukrainian legislation.

The sphere of our firm’s competence on legal issues of environmental protection includes:

  • provision of services on coordination of a company’s actions with the requirements of national environmental legislation and regulations contained in international conventions;
  • obtaining permits and assistance in negotiations with the relevant state control and local government agencies;
  • development and implementation of agreements on trade in carbon credit quotas;
  • implementation of investment projects under the Kyoto Protocol;
  • implementation of projects in the field of alternative energy sources.
