Building and operating energy projects requires unavoidable regulatory interaction, permitting and compliance.
With a constantly evolving environmental landscape, you need knowledgeable counsel to guide you through today’s regulations and prepare you for what’s coming tomorrow.
Utilizing our staff engineers and multiple attorneys with former careers in science and engineering, we cost-effectively negotiate and successfully obtain permits, achieving compliance for the following: air, water granting and quality, solid and hazardous waste disposal, recycling, composting and developing quantitative and qualitative systematic processes assessing the potential impacts of proposed projects and acquisitions.
We look for the best possible outcome for our clients and work back from there.
Our deep relationships with regulatory agencies and key technical staff prove invaluable. And, when necessary, we defend our energy clients in administrative and judicial enforcement actions brought by EPA, states or citizens.
We focus on the following aspects of environmental regulation:
