Practices & Industries Served


At home no matter the landscape.

Our environmental lawyers deploy deep subject matter knowledge to a broad range of environmental issues at the local, state, and national levels. But no matter the place or subject, we devote a practical approach to advance our clients’ interests, whatever the environmental challenge.

From assessing risks for a potential project to navigating decades-long litigation, our lawyers have the experience and expertise to address the full spectrum of environmental issues our clients face, from small to large and beginning to end.

Our team can help you with issues related to project permitting, water and air quality, hazardous waste, development of contaminated real estate, species protection, wetlands, waste management, alternative energy sources, and any litigation that may arise.

We assist clients with:

Permitting and Compliance

Addressing the environmental issues arising from project development requires not only knowing the regulatory framework, but also a keen awareness of the practical and political forces at play. We thrive in bringing both practical business and legal solutions to these complexities. We represent a wide array of businesses with various environmental permitting and compliance requirements, from large scale renewable energy to wastewater discharge to site remediation. Our specialty is practical advice to avert potential issues before they arise, but if your project has taken a left turn, our approach is designed to get you the permitting and compliance results your business needs.

Environmental Litigation

Our environmental litigation team has deep experience handling complex and high-stakes environmental tort and regulatory cases. Whether on a local or national scale, our litigators have experience in all phases of environmental litigation and approach its inherent litigation complexities with a focus on advancing our clients’ interests in a way that regulators, judges, and juries understand.

Appeals and Negotiated Settlements

Environmental permits may be appealed; enforcement orders may require negotiated resolutions. We have broad expertise in both administrative and court appeals of permitting decisions. We also work hard to find negotiated resolutions to compliance issues, where practical. Our attorneys lend a steady hand through the process, whether challenging or defending state and federal agencies’ permitting actions or working through the issues related to enforcement of environmental laws, from RCRA, to CERCLA and beyond.
