Environmental Law

The Environmental Law Group at Kahn, Soares & Conway, LLP provides the broadest possible range of services for clients dealing with the increasingly complex legal, administrative and legislative arenas.

Some of the areas in which we have counseled clients include:

  • Administrative rules — creating them; interpreting them; and challenging them.
  • Advocating before legislative and regulatory bodies
  • Air Quality
  • California Environmental Quality Act
  • Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (Superfund)
  • Crop protection
  • Endangered species
  • Environmental permits
  • Food Quality Protection Act
  • Fumigants
  • Green Chemistry
  • Pesticide registration
  • Pesticide regulatory matters
  • Proposition 65
  • Takings
  • Toxics and hazardous substances
  • Water Quality
  • Wetlands

A good portion of the Environmental Law Group's work involves counseling clients on their options for meeting challenges. The solution may take the form of helping clients understand a complex set of statutes, regulations and case law. Sometimes we counsel clients to challenge existing law or decisions, either directly through action in the administrative arena or the courts; sometimes we can better assist by advocating a change in the law on behalf of clients. When necessary, we negotiate and litigate the matter to conclusion.
