Environmental Law

Our lawyers combine decades of experience in government and the private sector to help our clients solve their environmental challenges. We represent clients in every aspect of litigation, civil enforcement, regulatory counseling, permitting, rulemaking, lobbying, criminal investigations, corporate crises, contaminated site remediation and business transactions. Our environmental lawyers assist clients in resolving issues arising in all media (air, water, waste, wetlands, etc.) and under every major environmental statute and regulatory program. We utilize effective advocacy, both in court and before the local, state and federal agencies with which we have built strong relationships.
