Environmental Law

Old Supreme Court of Belize in 1856

Environmental Law

Our team has led legal challenges regarding the environmental laws of Belize to the legality of decisions of government officials concerning the environmental clearance process and the government’s permitting commercial activity in protected areas, both at the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeal.

We are committed to responsible and sustainable development, and believe in development that ensures that our natural heritage is protected while at the same time helping Belize to achieve its economic potential. We therefore assist developers in obtaining proper environmental clearance, and connecting them with professionals who can assist them in the conduct of their environmental impact assessments and studies. We have also acted as consultants to non-governmental conservation organizations on their legal issues and in bridging the gap between developers and protection of the environment.
