Environmental Law

Environmental issues are increasingly coming to the fore in Tanzania partly due to the growing emphasis on corporate governance requirements in the shape of triple-bottom line reporting and partly to the country’s changing legal and regulatory landscape.

Hilton Attorneys fully understand the extent to which environmental considerations affect the operations of businesses across the economy, from agriculture and construction to energy, mining, manufacturing, property development, tourism and transportation. This is reflected in the comprehensive range of environmental law issues advised on, including land claims, mining rights, environmental compliance, regulation, waste and hazardous substance emissions and legal controls.

Hilton Attorneys has the Environmental team, which is able to address advisory, regulatory, compliance, contractual and transactional issues, as well as resolve and avoid potential disputes or litigate when disputes arise.

Hilton Attorneys provide clients with experienced environmental legal counsel in the pursuit of solutions that will maximize environmentally beneficial results at the lowest cost necessary to comply with regulatory and cleanup requirements.

The team collaborates with the Mining, Energy & Natural Resources practice to assist local and international companies in understanding the impact of their development projects on all aspects of the environment, from water, air, soil and groundwater to the cultural heritage of affected communities.
