Environmental

 
The firm provides general environmental counsel and assistance to industrial and commercial facilities, academic institutions, healthcare facilities and governmental entities, regularly representing such clients before the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the United States Army Corps of Engineers and state regulatory agencies throughout New England. The capabilities and experience of our environmental attorneys include virtually all aspects of regulatory compliance, risk management and litigation at the federal, state and local levels. In addition, the firm has actively contributed to the development of key environmental statutes and regulations.

We have a long-standing and successful track record of negotiating favorable resolutions to judicial and administrative enforcement actions. The firm's attorneys work closely with the client and, if necessary, outside environmental, engineering and/or public relations consultants in a concerted effort to address regulatory issues in a cost-effective manner. In addition, the firm regularly assists clients in designing and implementing both compliance and management system programs necessary to achieve environmental and occupational safety and health objectives. In doing so, the firm frequently develops educational programs and guidance materials for clients and often participates in their internal educational initiatives.
