The transformation, driven by new technologies, increasing regulation, and consolidation, that is currently taking place within the chemical industry calls not just for legal expertise but for expertise that has been shaped by extensive knowledge of the industry and its particular characteristics.
We advise market participants in all matters relating to the chemical industry, from M&A transactions, through issues relating to patent and antitrust law, to compliance. We also advise our clients on industry-specific topics, such as on environmental law and regulatory issues.
Legal regulations for the chemical industry are spread over many laws and are forever affected by new regulations and other changes. To ensure that our clients can from the outset avoid government sanctions, which can include the forfeiture of permits and licences and even criminal sanctions, we develop tailored industry-specific compliance programmes covering such issues as REACH and CLP compliance.
