Protection of nature

Atmos Avocats is highly committed to protecting biodiversity and the environment.

In addition to a perfect mastery of the evolution of the law, the firm contributes to its progress, not only through frequent doctrinal contributions but also through the development of leading-edge expertise on strategic issues, such as ecological damage or biodiversity compensation.


Forty years after the law on protecting nature, the law for the reconquest of biodiversity allows excellent progress. Atmos' lawyers are acquainted with these concepts, which are now enshrined in law. The inclusion of compensation for ecological damage is one illustrative example.

Water law

Atmos lawyers defend industrialists, local authorities and associations before all levels of jurisdiction on all aspects of water legislation: authorizations, sanitation, drinking water, GEMAPI, etc

Green and blue frameworks

The "green and blue framework" (TVB) is a tool combining the preservation of biodiversity and land use planning. This concept is a biodiversity preservation tool seeking to integrate the challenges of maintenance and strengthening of natural environments' functioning in planning tools and development projects.

Atmos' lawyers, therefore, are familiar with these concepts and the resulting issues.

Compensatory measures

Compensation measures for biodiversity damage aim to achieve the objective of no net loss or even a gain in biodiversity. They must lead to an obligation of results and be effective throughout the duration of the damage. Atmos Avocats has recognized expertise in this area and assists operational staff in their projects.
