With a wealth of collective experience and a variety of technical degrees across the group, our Environmental Practice navigates the complexities of environmental issues arising in all aspects of business: brownfield redevelopment, corporate transactions, divestment and restructuring, estate planning, financing, insurance cost recovery, litigation, permitting and land use, real estate acquisitions and leasing, regulatory compliance counseling, remediation project management and more.Our clients range from individuals to private and public corporations across industry sectors and geographic borders.

We are strategists who quickly quantify environmental risks and identify the material issues that must be addressed to achieve our clients’ goals. When circumstances warrant, we have the benefit of turning to attorneys of other disciplines in our firm as well as on-the-ground environmental consultants and engineers who can assist us with multi-disciplinary and cost-effective problem solving. Where many see roadblocks, we see solutions.
