Our environmental law practice covers a wide spectrum, including regulatory matters, litigation, and transactions. We counsel our clients regarding matters regulated by such entities as the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Pinelands Commission, the Army Corps of Engineers and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. We assist our clients with the process of identifying and applying for approvals needed for development, particularly with regard to environmentally sensitive areas such as wetlands, tidelands, endangered and threatened species habitat, waterfront and coastal areas. We also provide legal guidance with regard to water supply issues and wastewater management planning.
Our experience in the field of environmental law is extensive. From nuclear electric generating facilities to quarries and dams, marinas, golf courses, shopping centers, medical facilities, day care centers and houses of worship, we have worked with clients on a wide variety of projects in diverse circumstances and settings. Recently, we have counseled clients on "green" projects, including solar and wind energy.
Our litigation and appellate experience includes matters involving the Freshwater Wetlands Protection Act; the Coastal Area Facilities Review Act; the Industrial Site Recovery Act; the Pinelands Protection Act; and numerous other environmental laws. We also handle inverse condemnation cases.
In transactional matters, we assist with the environmental due diligence process in connection with the acquisition and financing of real estate development projects, including advice concerning the recently enacted Site Remediation Reform Act and the implementation of the Licensed Site Remediation Professional Program.
