The Environmental Law practice group provides timely advice to assist clients in navigating the labyrinth of state and federal environmental laws and regulations. We represent and defend businesses and individuals before state and federal regulatory agencies in civil, administrative and criminal enforcement proceedings. We also counsel clients, including lending institutions and developers, on the liabilities inherent in acquiring or lending with respect to environmentally-impacted properties. Our experience also includes negotiating agreements under New York State's Brownfield Cleanup Program. We appear in all state and federal courts in litigated environmental cases including those involving petroleum spills and cleanups, hazardous waste disposal and remediation, and compliance with the State Environmental Quality Review Act.
