Environmental Law

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

A good portion of the 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 matters to conclusion.

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
  • Clean Air Act
  • 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
