Legal500 Rating 2018- Environment
Bech-Bruun’s environmental practice is ‘among the best’ and provides the full range of services for a broad range of clients, including public sector entities such as the Danish Agriculture and Food Council and the Region Zealand. The five-partner team is led by the ‘very skilled and service-minded’ Håkun Djurhuus and Jacob Brandt, who stands out for his ‘strategic mindset and experience from the regulatory side’. The group advised the Municipality of Fredericia in relation to the spillage of liquid fertiliser in the harbour. Other highlights include the department assisting Femern with public law matters regarding the construction of a tunnel; and advising Nord Stream 2 on the construction and operation of two pipelines in the Baltic Sea, including the environmental impact assessment.
