Environmental law

OO&K has a specialized team of Advocates with profound understanding of environmental law. The team constantly update themselves on changes in the law. Our expertise spans environmental  compliance, management and liability to the environmental aspects of corporate and commercial transactions. We give advice on the legal aspects of energy, environmental due diligence, environmental reporting, land use, and planning and zoning.

Some of our core services cover legal risk mitigation and management, permitting, projects and developments, appeals against administrative decisions and judicial reviews, criminal and administrative disputes, impacts and compliance, due diligence investigations and compliance auditing.

Our specialist Advocates are equipped with a practical understanding of both the law and its application by the regulators and are able to handle environmental matters in all the jurisdictions in which we are located. We are able to ensure that our clients’ environmental requirements and risks are seamlessly managed in alignment with their broader business requirements and priorities.

We advise clients on compliance with the Environmental Management and Coordination Act (EMCA), 1999. The statute is the most significant environmental legislation in Kenya, which is frequently overlooked in commercial transactions.
