Water, Energy, Resources and Environmental Law

Water, energy, resources and environmental issues affect virtually every type of business and industrial interest. With increased government regulation, expanding technology and changing public policy, businesses need experienced environmental legal counsel to guide them through the intricate maze of evolving state and federal laws and regulations.

The risk in not hiring a law firm to assist with water and environmental law cases can significantly outweigh the attorneys’ fees. Water and environmental law cases can potentially involve multiple parties and overlapping areas of liability. In addition, cases involving complex environmental, water and natural resource issues can involve 1) extensive disruption in business practices, 2) the requirement to create or adopt environmental regulatory programs and the associated compliance expenses, and 3) the actual imposition of massive statutory penalties. In many cases, an attorney's knowledge of environmental agencies at the federal, state or local levels can quickly resolve a problem. Hiring a lawyer experienced in water and environmental case law, and with relevant administrative law and trial experience, is the most effective step you can take to minimize your liability and any penalties you might face.
