Due to an increasingly complex regulatory landscape, your environmental and land use issues are diverse and challenging. As a result, you often need strategic guidance in a timely manner to achieve your environmental objectives.
We know the law, science, and technical issues associated with environmental and land development permitting, and we know how to use all three to argue our clients’ cases effectively in court and before regulatory authorities to obtain necessary approvals in nearly every state.
Serving as a driving force to meet project deadlines, we protect our clients’ projects during the administrative process by ensuring all issues have been properly addressed in environmental impact reports (EIRs), environmental impact statements (EISs), and other environmental review documents.
We routinely manage high-profile and controversial land use projects while working seamlessly with project teams in a cost-effective manner, customizing our level of services and approach to the circumstances of each project.
We have decades of experience at both the trial and appellate levels so you can trust our Chambers-ranked environmental trial lawyers to handle the most complex environmental litigation. Our team has particular experience with multiparty Superfund litigation and citizen suits brought under the Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), and Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). We also defend claims brought under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).
Members of our team include a former general counsel of the California Environmental Protection Agency and former DOJ environmental prosecutors, which gives us inside perspective on how regulators think and helps us effectively manage environmental enforcement actions on behalf of our clients.
