Environmental Law

Environmental Law practice in Paraguay is in many aspects pioneered by the Vouga team. Our Firm is actively participating in initiatives to formulate changes to current environmental regulations. The Firm is consulted on a regular basis by local environmental authorities and is thus helping set the agenda on the matter. We advise in a wide range of environmental matters including:

  • Environmental licenses for mining, oil & gas, water, conservation, industrial and forestry projects.
  • Environmental due diligences.
  • Evaluation of legal environmental contingencies.
  • Formulation of action plans for compliance with environmental laws.
  • Administrative and judicial litigation on environmental matters.
  • Advice on various environmental protection regimes such as exploitation of water resources, protected species and areas.
  • Assistance in certification processes in accordance with the standard ISO 14000.
  • Drafting of environmental clauses for contracts.
  • Following-up of environmental legislation, regulations, and case law.
