The environmental regulatory climate is unpredictable and rapidly changing.
As complex regulatory issues arise regularly under federal and state environmental statutes, clients need counsel that understands all facets of the regulatory industry and can manage the risks. Our practice covers air and water pollution control, hazardous and solid waste management, accidental releases of oil and hazardous substances, state and federal Superfund matters and asbestos abatement.
We offer a competitive edge, having daily involvement with federal and state environmental agencies. We know them. They know us.
We solve challenges efficiently, working with clients to design and implement compliance assessment programs and environmental, health and safety management systems, resolving the issues identified in our findings.
With technically complex permitting, remediation and regulatory compliance issues, our highly qualified in-house team of environmental scientists and engineers goes the extra mile for our clients. We also offer services from writing internal audit manuals to conducting auditor training and assisting with TSCA compliance.
