Handling environmental and energy disputes is a fundamental part of our practice. We defend lawsuits, give compliance counseling, and offer guidance in the face of legal and regulatory quagmires.

We defend lawsuits and offer compliance counseling on environmental and energy issues. Both developers and governments turn to us to resolve environmental and energy-sector issues.

We have addressed issues concerning air, water, noise, contaminated-land liability, waste disposal, toxic substances, and natural resources. We work diligently to understand your needs, provide sound advice, and collaborate to develop pragmatic solutions to your environmental issues.

Our attorneys also have particular experience representing clean-energy clients. As a result, we focus on providing clients solutions to the legal challenges they face as developers and creators of the future of the energy industry.

From acquisition to development, construction, and operation, we help clients navigate the regulatory hurdles to energy projects and litigate disputes at every stage of the process. We also draw upon our successful experience in commercial, securities, and landā€use litigation to provide comprehensive service. We will work to understand your goals, provide sound advice, and collaborate on pragmatic solutions that ensure your energy projects thrive.
