Deep experience in broad environmental law, regulation and disputes

Our Environmental Group handles a substantial U.S. and international caseload, working across practice areas, including corporate, real estate, litigation, health care and labor, to provide a full range of environmental services required by clients. We cover all aspects of environmental law, including transactional counseling, compliance, remediation, litigation, land use and sustainability and climate change in a host of industries such as chemical, industrial, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals.

Our creativity, pragmatism and strong business acumen are what differentiates us. We advise clients on the environmental risks in mergers and acquisitions, real estate transactions and financings; environmental compliance matters, Superfund and RCRA cases, federal and state enforcement proceedings; sustainability and climate change issues; remediation; environmental litigation and proceedings including bankruptcies, transfer laws and California’s Proposition 65; land use matters; and historic preservation. In addition to being highly responsive and practical problem-solvers, we are holistic in our approach to our clients’ needs.

Attorneys in our group have been practicing environmental law for over 40 years and have served in a variety of positions, including a Fellow of the American College of Environmental Lawyers, the current chair of the Council on the Environment of New York City, former chairs of both the New York State Bar Association's Environmental Law Section and the Environmental Law Committee of the New York City Bar, and a three-time gubernatorial appointee to the New York State Environmental Board.
