Alston & Bird’s Environment, Land Development & Natural Resources practice provides literal “coast-to-coast” coverage with 65 attorneys located in Atlanta, Los Angeles, Sacramento, Ventura County and Washington, D.C. Seven partners on our team have been recognized among the foremost legal practitioners in the field of environmental law by Chambers USA and Who’s Who Legal. In addition, one of our partners is a former chair of the ABA Section of Environment, Energy & Resources, and another is the immediate past director of California’s Department of Toxic Substances Control. Our team also includes former senior enforcement officials from the Environmental Enforcement Section and Environmental Crimes Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, as well as the Office of General Counsel for U.S. EPA.
We have a particularly recognized depth in California, a jurisdiction routinely on the leading edge of issues such as climate change, green chemistry, carbon control, land entitlements, nanotechnology and renewable and alternative energy projects.
