Dana P. Stanton



Dana Stanton is an associate on Nixon Peabody’s Environmental and Land Use team. She helps clients achieve compliance with complex environmental laws and regulations.

What do you focus on?

My practice focuses on the development, financing and buying/selling of energy projects. I perform environmental diligence for clients that rely on me to identify and evaluate existing and potential environmental liabilities and structure deal provisions to eliminate and allocate risks.

I also counsel developers and lenders in contaminated property and brownfields redevelopment, including advising on federal, state and local programs to obtain liability relief.

Additional areas of focus for my practice are environmental cost recovery litigation, brownfield transactions, municipal law and land use litigation. I oversee the cleanup of contaminated property from investigation, through remediation, to site closure.

What do you see on the horizon?

I have been following the growing utilization of renewable energy generation and green infrastructure as ways to serve the needs of society while minimizing disruption to natural resources.
