From year to year, activities of various companies have an increasing environmental impact. The extent of environmental damage grows in proportion to rates of production and natural resource development. In this respect, the Republic of Kazakhstan imposes increasingly tougher environmental requirements on companies. However, such requirements are sometimes very demanding and discriminatory. Thus, in this regard, special legal knowledge is required to correctly assess the situation and offer a satisfactory dispute settlement.

Kazakhstani legislation provides very tough sanctions for environmental violations. For this reason, when settling any environmental dispute, financial considerations are of utmost importance.

Such disputes take place with representatives of environmental authorities. The primary concern is to choose the correct action to defend subsoil users.

GRATA Law Firm’s professionals have extensive experience protecting the interests of private companies and have participated in court hearings and succeeded in protecting clients from unlawful actions of supervisory authorities.
