We’re all concerned about the environment and protecting our natural resources like water, minerals, endangered species, and even the air we breathe. That’s where environmental law comes into play. It regulates businesses and how they impact the environment.
Environmental law focuses on several key components:
Environmental law is complex. If you’d like to learn even more about it, here is a great resource, https://www.environmentalscience.org/environmental-law.
Our environmental law attorneys work to help clients navigate and negotiate with regulatory agencies at the federal, state, and local levels. We combine our legal know-how with our technical expertise in engineering and science to support and represent individuals, companies, and municipalities to ensure both the environment and our clients are protected. That means enforcing environmental regulations and those injured by environmental damage as well as defending individuals or businesses against lawsuits alleging environmental damage.
With all the regulations surrounding environmental law, it pays to have an environmental law attorney close by making sure you remain in compliance, especially if your business routinely comes into contact with environmental laws. Are you looking to build? Has your business created pollution? Do you use large volumes of water with your business? Does your business impact soil quality? Do you have toxic waste requiring disposal? We have the expertise to address these types of concerns.
Our lawyers have extensive experience assisting clients in conducting voluntary internal investigations and environmental audits. In response to government triggers, our lawyers have assisted clients in conducting mandatory investigations to identify compliance issues and areas in need of corrective action. The lawyers at Land Air Water Legal Solutions LLC can identify and manage outside consultants to assist in providing specialized services connected with identifying compliance deficiencies and developing and implementing corrective actions.
Whether you’re a landowner, developer, lender or private equity investor, our environmental law attorneys can reduce the risks attached to corporate real estate financing and transactions. We provide counsel covering the following areas of concern:
We guide our clients through all phases of the construction process including feasibility analyses, bidding, construction, and closeout. Our lawyers negotiate and draft construction and development contracts, counsel clients on organized labor issues, appear before regulatory bodies, and assist clients in overcoming issues on troubled projects. If you run into issues relating to design defects, delays, construction methods, specifications compliance, quality of work, site conditions, changes, cost recovery, remediation, organized labor, personal injury, mechanics’ liens, or the Prompt Payment Act arise, our experienced construction litigators have the answers
We represent buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers. Whether you are buying, selling, borrowing, lending or investing in real estate or on-going business concerns, there are potential exposures to environmental liability and operational risks. Those liabilities and exposures need to be identified, understood, and documented. Our lawyers conduct and facilitate environmental and land use due diligence associated with the purchase and sale of real estate, mergers and acquisitions, and divestitures of businesses and other assets. Our goal is to ensure your deal goes through with no surprises.
With environmental law, counseling is critical. Why? Because it can be tough understanding how environmental regulations are applied. We specialize in breaking down those regulations into understandable and implementable actions. We can help you determine what regulations apply to your operations and what you must do to attain and maintain compliance all the way down to permits and permit conditions. Our environmental lawyers will help develop strategies ensuring compliance with state and federal regulatory programs while mitigating your risks.
During crisis management, companies are repeatedly faced with the need to address situations where they often lack expertise. That’s when you need a team with the expertise and knowledge to counsel, support and assist company management during and after the crisis. Our attorneys know how to respond to regulatory and government authorities, the community, employees, media, and insurance companies. We take into account short and long term liabilities, regulations and their application, and deliver transparency in communications.
Our environmental law attorneys negotiate creative solutions to complex environmental enforcement, contract indemnity disputes, and litigation matters. Experience counts and our attorneys have represented clients before the U.S. EPA, PA Public Utilities Commission, PA Environmental Hearing Board, and NLRB in issues relating to agency enforcement actions, permit appeals, and contaminated site cost recovery litigation. We’ve helped multi-national Fortune 100 companies along with local businesses and municipalities in sectors like chemical, manufacturing, waste management, recycling, construction, and more.
Our environmental lawyers have represented municipalities and municipal authorities, public and private corporations, joint ventures, private businesses, and individuals. They helped in obtaining permits for municipal and residual waste landfills, transfer stations, resource recovery facilities, incinerators, and autoclaves. Our involvement has required an in-depth understanding of the solid waste rules, but also the ability and experience to evaluate the impacts of environmental programs such as wetlands protection, water management, soil conservation and air pollution control on the solid waste application, and ensure the proper coordination of permits or approvals at both the state and local levels.
It pays to have a good environmental law firm to make sure you avoid potential issues. Give us a call. We’ll make sure you’re covered. Call 833-LAW-1914.
