As environmental law touches more and more areas of our lives and businesses, our firm has responded by developing the necessary expertise within our practice areas to represent our clients in this complex field. We provide counsel on compliance with the environmental regulatory framework of both state and federal enforcement agencies, provides the legal expertise for environmental permitting activities, and litigation support for clients involved in disputes with regulators or neighboring property owners.
Lawyers in our environmental group focus on efficiently and effectively meeting the needs of our clients to respond to problems which arise in the course of transactions, day-to-day business operations and event-related incidents through their familiarity with the latest developments in key areas of environmental law such as the Superfund Laws, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), EPCRA, Florida’s Petroleum and Dry Cleaning Solvent Contamination Remediation Programs and other regulatory areas that impact our clients.
One of the biggest challenges in running some businesses is compliance with the regulations governing environmental issues. We help our clients to meet that challenge through presenting clear, simplified approaches to making certain that business operations comply with the myriad of environmental regulations. Such counsel helps to prevent the expense of responding to enforcement actions, even for those violations which may be minor in nature and their potential for harm to the environment small, but which still add cost to business activities and subtract from the bottom line. When environmental litigation is unavoidable, we provide litigation support by experienced lawyers with the background needed to handle environmental matters.
Practice areas include:
- Environmental Compliance Issues
