Heightened interest in environmental protection has resulted in extensive legislation and a myriad of administrative rules and procedures aimed at safeguarding natural resources and human health.

Our attorneys have been handling claims related to indoor air quality and sick buildings since those terms were coined. Changing construction techniques, increasing medical concerns about the dangers of mold, and intense media attention have combined to stimulate litigation activity in this field of environmental law.

Outdoors, our environmental law group is experienced in defending claims brought under federal or state environmental regulations, including hazardous materials transportation and disposal, material spills, chemical exposure and water and air pollution.
