Farella Braun + Martel's Environmental Law Department offers specialized, high-quality legal services in all areas, including environmental, products, health and safety, and natural resources. Our practice is among the largest and most experienced in the nation, with more than twenty dedicated environmental compliance counselors, regulatory representatives, litigators and trial attorneys whose collective depth allows us to meet our clients' needs in any engagement, large or small, public or discrete.
Our Environmental attorneys' experience includes:
Many of our attorneys began their careers with the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the United States Department of Justice Environment and Natural Resources Division or United States Attorneys' Offices. Several lawyers in the group have advanced professional degrees and experience in engineering and scientific disciplines. We frequently draw on this experience, together with our private practice experience, business acumen and reputation and credibility with federal, state and local government regulators, enforcement authorities, judges and fellow practitioners, to develop and effectively implement strategies to achieve our client's objectives.
Because a client's interests in environmental matters often demand expertise in other areas of law, we frequently work with multidisciplinary teams from Farella Braun + Martel's insurance coverage, land use, real estate, construction, employment, tax, corporate, criminal defense and intellectual property practices. Collaboration with our real estate, insurance coverage and land use practice groups, for instance, allows us to handle brownfields redevelopment sites and military base conversions from "cradle to grave." The same may be true in working with our Construction Group with respect to publicly or privately financed construction projects. We are also experienced in working with non-legal professionals from the technical, scientific, medical, legislative and public relations communities to develop client strategies and solutions that crossover to areas beyond the law.
Whether representing a small business or a Fortune 100 corporation, our Environmental Law Department draws on more than 150 years of collective experience to achieve business-oriented, cost-effective solutions, the best evidence of which is the repeat business we receive from clients across all industries, including:
- Contract Services
- Food and Food Processing
- Lending and Investors
