Overview

The landscape of environmental and natural resource law is a patchwork of complex and sometimes overlapping laws, regulations and agency policies that change at a dizzying pace. Companies affected by environmental requirements routinely deal with legal disputes, compliance headaches, public relations challenges, and legislative roadblocks. In short, running a business with an environmental impact can get very complicated, very quickly.

Their unique approach combines a dedicated team of attorneys skilled in specific areas of environmental law with a respected legislative team that watches out for our clients’ interests on the state and national level. Integrating these functions allows them to provide comprehensive solutions that address their clients’ current needs while monitoring changes in regulations and legislation that might affect their future business plans.
