Practice Areas:


Peru is a megadiverse country. Therefore, it is especially important to make the efficient implementation of actions and the adequate management of the environment in which they are developed compatible.

From Hernández & Cía. we help different industries understand the implications of their initiatives for environmental compliance, paying due attention to social, political, and economic factors.

Our advice on environmental matters includes consulting services, due diligence, appeals, representation before administrative inspection and/or sanctioning procedures, and legal defense. We do so through environmental instruments and certifications, adaptation programs, solid waste management, effluent and emissions management, extended producer responsibility, and environmental emergencies.
