As the leading firm in nuclear law and energy in the Benelux, we provide our clients with a wide range of specialist expertise.
As such, we act on complex nuclear law issues including permits to build and operate a nuclear power plant, and permits for the transport of nuclear materials and waste. In addition, we handle other challenging areas such as nuclear liability, health and safety regulations and insurance coverage.
Following the Fukushima calamities, the transport and use of nuclear material was highly debated all over Europe. Several cross-border transports of nuclear material between EU member states came under intense scrutiny. We continue to represent several government agencies in the nuclear sector on proceedings related to the transportation of nuclear material and on the right to access nuclear related information, as enshrined in the Aarhus Treaty.
We also assist governmental agencies with the legal aspects of long-term waste management, nuclear planning and the control of nuclear facilities etc.
