The Enviro Legal Defence Firm (ELDF), India’s first environmental law firm, is a manifestation of a dream, to be different; to achieve; to make a difference. Environment is the canvas, law is the brush. We look forward to painting a life, which is beautiful, clean, green, fresh and honest. ELDF aims at mainstreaming the discipline of environment and development law, resolving conflicts over natural resources and strengthen environmental jurisprudence. It’s our belief that there is a great potential to contribute to this discipline by bridging the gap that exists between the field-based conflicts and the courts or other formal adjudicating bodies. We also believe that ‘Practicing law’ has to grow beyond the formal courts of law.
We aim at providing a unique institutional framework that would sustain major legal initiatives both within and outside the courts. ELDF is an independent team of erudite legal professionals, which provides services to anyone who approaches us, including Governments, Non-Government Organizations, Educational Institutions, Individuals, Private and External Agencies engaged in areas of environment and development law. It is our endeavor to ensure that the service provided by us is free from all biases and prejudices and speaks frankly about legal aspects- as we understand them.
