Sunshine, the constitution and HJF
Encroachments by the state and their consequences for investors in the field of alternative energy sources have not escaped the attention of specialists in constitutional law in the Law Office of Hartmann, Jelínek, Fráňa and Partners
The law office has at its disposal leading specialists in evaluation of constitutional conflicts which have arisen from the decision-making of executive bodies and judicial authorities in the Czech Republic, as well as unconstitutional encroachments into individual rights and freedoms through the legislative activities of the lawmaking bodies.
The problems of state encroachment into rules for preparation, construction and operation of alternative sources of energy, above all photovoltaic power plants, have recently become the centre of public attention. Encroachments performed, above all by means of governmental regulations and other byelaws of a general nature have evoked a defensive reaction among investors, not only foreign ones, but above all domestic investors.
The law office currently provides legal aid to more than ten domestic owners and operators of photovoltaic power plants and provides a consultancy service to several important foreign investors. Almost ten constitutional complaints processed in the office will evidently find their way onto the agenda of the Constitutional Court this year.
The office has also prepared a project for investors and operators or alternative sources to counter the encroachments of the state regarding pricing and subsidies.
Support for small and medium-sized enterprises
The permanent legislative initiative of the Parliament of the Czech Republic and the whirlwind of implementing legislation of the state administration authorities and local government relating to this, affects the commercial environment, which suffers from constant changes, especially in the field of finance and taxes. The impending completely new regulation of the Civil Code will also significantly affect the commercial environment.
The European factory of directives and regulations obediently connected to our system of laws makes the environment for small and medium-sized enterprises very confusing. This is why the Law Office of Hartmann, Jelínek, Fráňa and Partners offers a helping hand.
