Milar? Advogados is a pioneering Brazilian law firm, one of the country's first exclusively dedicated to environmental law and representing a broad spectrum of clients.


Founded in 1996, Milar? Advogados relies on its managing partner and environmental law professor, Mr ?dis Milar?, a former public prosecutor who founded the Environmental Law Prosecutor's Office in connection with the Public Attorney's Office of S?o Paulo state. His environmental protection work in the Public Attorney's Office was not only pioneering in the field but actually led the way in developing the body of Brazilian environmental law.

Main areas of practice

Milar? Advogados is a boutique law firm, exclusively focused on all aspects of environmental law. The firm provides full services related to litigation, administrative procedures and legal and institutional counsel on environmental affairs.

The firm is specialized in environmental law and environmental management, while its attorneys are experts in environmental civil law, environmental criminal law, environmental administrative law and environmental management. The firm's team deals with civil, administrative and criminal law arising in environmental cases. The team is not exclusively formed by lawyers, but also includes environmental planning engineers, license managers, management engineers, sociologists specializing in environmental policies and geographers.

It is important to highlight that Milar? Advogados handles the most significant cases related to environmental law in Brazil. The firm deals with the most important projects in Brazil that have some relation to the environment. The firm also has extensive experience in obtaining environmental licenses for infrastructure and forestry projects, authorisation to access genetic resources, and administrative and court processes related to environmental law.

It is also important to highlight that Milar? Advogados has an important role for the doctrine of environmental law as well. The Law of Environment, written by Professor Milar?, is the most important book in the area and is now in its tenth edition. Another important book, coordinated by Professor Milar? with the support of Milar? Advogados, is the book about the new Brazilian Forestry Law (C?digo Florestal - Law 12.651/2012); this law established a completely new regime for the protection of forestry in Brazil, presenting important changes especially for agribusiness.
