Environmental Law and Spatial Planning Law Firm
Profile of our firm in environmental law and spatial planning law
HABITAT environmental law specialists is a law firm founded by Barry Meruma (LLM) in Amsterdam. HABITAT specializes in Environmental Law and Judiciary processes in the Netherlands. We concern ourselves with issues pertaining to living, building, environment, spatial planning, pesticides and nature-related cases. As these cases often involve multiple legal procedures with administrative bodies concerning permits, compliance and financial compensation, we offer professional legal support in guiding clients through, sometimes, complicated legal issues.
Typical legal issues in Amsterdam are issues with the municipality concerning building permits, nuisance issues or spatial planning regulations. Since it is customary that apartment owners are joined in an Owner’s Association, so called ‘ Vereniging van Eigenaars’, legal questions can also arise on the subject of responsibility and liabilities.
We strive for an innovative solution-focused work practice in which our clients are central at all times. We have a realistic approach to the success of a case, and also to the client’s costs.
