Environmental Law

For businesses and property owners, the failure to identify, address, or remediate environmental concerns can throttle an ongoing project or leave them exposed to substantial liability for running afoul of complex and multi-layered laws and regulations. Conversely, taking a proactive approach that leverages the experience and insights of seasoned environmental lawyers can minimize disruptions and facilitate efficient, cost-effective resolutions of these complicated matters.

At Carella, Byrne, Cecchi, Brody & Agnello, P.C., our environmental law attorneys help clients navigate the myriad challenges presented by environmental issues. Whether in the earliest stages of a proposed acquisition or transaction, during enforcement, regulatory, and zoning proceedings, or in insurance coverage and other disputes, our lawyers leverage their advocacy skills and legal acumen to protect and advance our clients’ interests.

The Experience To Navigate An Ever-Changing Landscape

We know that property owners, developers, and others can often overlook environmental issues or find themselves in the crosshairs of regulators simply because there are so many overlapping regulatory regimes at play. That is why we take the time to educate and advise our clients about all potential issues that could impact their plans. Our attorneys also recognize that the environmental law ecosystem can be as ever-changing as the environment itself, so we stay abreast of all legislative and regulatory developments and prepare our clients accordingly.

Our experienced litigators represent clients in state and federal courts, and before state and federal regulatory authorities in connection with governmental enforcement actions and disputes between parties as to rights and responsibilities relating to environmental concerns.
