Environmental Law

Counseling clients on environmental compliance, permitting, remediation, and litigation
Our Approach

We guide municipalities and private parties through all aspects of State and Federal environmental investigation and remediation processes. This includes negotiation of complex consent decrees and administrative orders, coordinating remediation in a timely and cost-efficient manner, and litigating multi-party cost recovery actions. We also assist our clients through the application process for available tax credits under the NYS Brownfield Cleanup Program. Our attorneys work with our clients’ engineers and environmental consultants to obtain permits from NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, NYC Department of Environmental Protection, United States Army Corps of Engineers, and other regulatory agencies.
