Guiding Clients Through Complex Environmental Law Challenges

Kaplin Stewart’s team of attorneys help clients resolve complex environmental law issues and challenges. Our lawyers represent a broad base of clients with a particular focus on owners and potential owners of real estate looking to redevelop properties. We are well-versed in environmental laws and regulations at the federal, state and local levels and the head of our Environmental Law practice is a civil engineer with years of experience working in the environmental industry prior to becoming an attorney. He has specialized training in conducting and managing site investigation and remediation projects as well as designing storm water and sanitary sewer upgrade projects.

Representing Clients in a Broad Scope of Environmental Law Matters

Our firm provides comprehensive advice and representation in connection with a broad range of environmental law matters, including:

  • Permitting. The attorneys in our Environmental practice have extensive experience helping clients obtain the permits and approvals necessary to move forward with development and redevelopment projects. We have an in-depth understanding of what is required to secure permits and approvals at the federal, state and local levels and we carefully steer clients through each phase of the process.
  • Site Development and Brownfield Redevelopment. Manufacturing and industrial activities that have taken place on properties decades ago can raise serious environmental contamination concerns today. Our Environmental Law attorneys understand these concerns and work with clients seeking to redevelop brownfield sites which may contain hazardous substances, pollutants or other contaminants.
  • Regulatory Compliance. Environmental regulations and reporting requirements are highly complex and constantly changing. We work closely with clients to ensure they are taking proactive and effective measures to comply with regulatory mandates governing their development/redevelopment projects and activities.
  • Administrative Proceedings and Litigation. Kaplin Stewart’s Environmental Law attorneys have substantial experience handling the wide range of environmental challenges associated with the development and redevelopment of properties. Our lawyers counsel clients involved in all types of environmental administrative proceedings and litigation, including matters involving permit denials and permit challenges at the federal, state and local levels.

At Kaplin Stewart, our Environmental Law lawyers appreciate that environmental law matters require an attentive and immediate response. When environmental issues surface, we work closely with clients to identify creative and individualized options that best serve our clients’ business objectives. We understand that time is of the essence and strive to resolve and conclude each matter as efficiently and economically as possible.
