Areas of practice

Trained as a publicist, Romain Lemaire is involved in various areas of public law (administrative liability, public property, public service, pre-emption).

His leading practice is devoted to urban planning law (planning, land use permits, regional development) and environmental law (ICPE/environmental permits, energy, waste, quarries, nature protection, risk prevention plans, etc.).

Romain Lemaire handles a wide variety of cases, as do the firm's clients, including companies and various economic players, local authorities, individuals and associations.

These interventions, therefore, include legal advice, through support for administrative decisions (municipalities, EPCI), the implementation and securing of industrial, economic development or planning projects, as well as the evaluation of legal risks and the opportunity of operations or projects (audit, feasibility study, legal consultations).

A significant part of his mission is devoted to administrative and civil litigation, both with claimants and in the implementation of the defence, before all the French Courts and Tribunals (petition, appeal for excess of power, full litigation, summary proceedings, summons, etc.).

These missions cover all aspects of the litigation and pre-litigation treatment of the cases entrusted to us, including the development of litigation strategies, the search for amicable solutions, the referral of cases to the courts, the drafting of pleadings and representation before the courts and in court expertise.
