Lemery Greisler's environmental practice encompasses a broad spectrum of administrative law matters, primarily involving planning and zoning, land development, solid waste management, utility regulation, and economic development issues. Our attorneys represent clients before municipal, state, and federal administrative agencies and in the courts, and provide counsel to local and city governments. We are proud to have sited and secured environmental permitting for major projects, including resort hotel developments, condominium projects, hydroelectric projects, recovery resources facilities, and other commercial and residential developments. As counsel to current and former owners and operators of petroleum bulk storage facilities, the Firm has experience in matters related to state Superfund groundwater cleanup and soil contamination. In addition, our attorneys work closely with hydrogeology experts and materials testing laboratories. We have both settled cases and represented clients at trial, including large oil companies, to obtain a favorable and fair outcome.
