We know the law, science and technical issues associated with environmental and land development permitting, and we know how to use all three to effectively argue our clients’ cases in court and before regulatory authorities to obtain necessary approvals. Because we strive to achieve creative outcomes that add value to our clients’ businesses, we maintain a strong practice before all federal, state, regional and local agencies regulating environmental permitting and compliance.
We are leaders in our field. Seven partners on our team have been recognized among the foremost legal practitioners in the field of environmental law by Chambers USA, which describes us as “a phenomenal group at the top of the industry.” 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 the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
