Environmental

Effective legal service in the environmental industry requires more than a thorough understanding of the alphabet soup of environmental law. We have attorneys who have devoted their careers to this industry; they know why the laws have been enacted and can explain how the laws impact your business. Our team will tirelessly advocate on your behalf before federal and state courts when laws are being misapplied against your business. And we advocate for appropriate changes to existing law. We have utilized various state Brownfields laws to promote major redevelopments of environmentally impaired property.

From addressing facility operations and expansions to resolving non-compliance situations, we have assisted a variety of clients in all aspects of regulatory compliance and transactional activities involving:

  • Solid and hazardous waste
  • Air
  • Wastewater
  • Underground storage tanks
  • Site assessments and remediation
  • Voluntary cleanups
  • Wetlands
  • Asbestos
  • Lender and corporate officer liability
  • Permit applications (renewals and modifications)

We provide guidance on reporting requirements including:

  • Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA)
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA)
  • Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA)

We represent and negotiate on behalf of our clients with respect to:
