Our Environmental team is dedicated to environmental law. It is what we do all day, every day, and we are ready to assist our clients in real time. We know that when an environmental-related opportunity or problem arises, you need immediate attention. Our team is available at a moment’s notice to ensure the most efficient and effective resolution for our clients.

We are experienced in all environmental programs and have coordinated with state environmental agencies and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Our team includes the former Director of the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality ("NDEQ") which administers and enforces environmental laws in Nebraska.

We help our clients stay proactive in environmental compliance by tracking local and national environmental trends and utilizing our world-class network of resources to align client objectives with opportunities. Our services include:

Due Diligence: We work with our M&A and Real Estate teams on due diligence related to transactions in Nebraska and across the United States.

Permitting: We have extensive experience working on environmental permitting issues in air quality, water quality, and waste management programs.

Compliance: Compliance with local, state, or federal environmental laws can be difficult and confusing. Our experience ranges from consultation on avoiding compliance issues to negotiation of enforcement actions.

Strategy: Our experience includes many years of leadership at the state and national level with environmental policy issues. This experience is invaluable in devising strategic goals for your business while understanding dynamics of environmental requirements. This knowledge of policy and governmental operations enables us to be effective environmental government relations attorneys.

Remediation: Our experience includes all aspects of representation in remediation programs and redevelopment of property.

Litigation: We work with our Litigation team to handle any administrative or judicial issue that may arise. Close teamwork enables the litigating attorney to have experienced environmental attorneys as a resource.
