Environmental Expropriation, Mining, Dredging

Expropriation for public purposes has many legal aspects covering the activities of mines, quarries and utilities; the construction and use of ducts and rights-of way; the development of roads and canals, the sites for industrial zones; improvement of sub-standard housing and development projects in towns and cities. DBB offers legal counselling by experienced practitioners regarding expropriation proceedings.

We advise clients on rights to the soil and sub-soil to assist them with mining and quarrying operations. With long experience in the field, DBB has been able to build up a unique library of documentation and precedents in this area, which enables us to give specific answers to many of the detailed questions that arise.
