Chemical and Industrial Processes

Chemical processes are governed by their own set of laws. Highly complex in nature, industrial processes can therefore only be safely developed where the individual elements, from sourcing to distribution of products, but especially production processes, are planned completely in advance and in detail, and are continually controlled during implementation. Our team of lawyers in the chemicals field has significant experience in advising on complex industrial projects and in supporting operational activities. As well as the legal issues, we also understand the economic and, above all, the operational issues in this field.

At Kümmerlein we support our clients with regard to private  (contract law) and public law (regulatory law) issues, particularly in the area of planning and process management. We have a strong focus on:

  • Acquisition and sale of chemical businesses
  • Preparation and negotiation of procurement and distribution agreements
  • Site agreements for chemical parks
  • Advice on facilities construction and on expansion projects
  • Health and safety at work, security and the environment (HSSE)
  • Approval and public consultation proceedings
