Environmental and Land Use
Environmental compliance is a challenge that can make or break a business. Environmental laws are complex and their mandates often obscure. Confidence in your environmental lawyer is essential. That is why so many businesses and landowners trust Halloran & Sage for counsel in this field. Independent surveys rank our environmental and land-use attorneys as among the best in the region. With an accomplished record of legal firsts and milestones, we are known as trailblazers in the industry. From resolving Connecticut's worst contamination problem to litigating its largest Superfund case, our attorneys apply their in-depth knowledge of the field to achieving the best outcomes for our clients.
Our approach is to identify environmental risks before they become barriers. Whether the issue requires intervention with a government agency, litigation in the courtroom or negotiation in the boardroom, our multidisciplinary legal team protects your interests. Our clients include developers, businesses, institutions, municipalities and individuals. In every case, our commitment to our client is to collaborate and communicate, ensuring that we understand your business goals and that you understand the legal process.
We guide clients through the process of obtaining permits and approvals, paving the way for them to develop or expand commercial and industrial property or to construct entertainment, retail and residential projects. We represent clients in complex projects involving siting and construction of power plants, solid-waste facilities, transmission lines and Brownfields. In fact, we handled the first Brownfield development for the first indoor/outdoor performing arts center in the nation to use new state funding programs. For matters involving regulatory compliance or site cleanup, we provide counsel not only in what the law requires, but also in what it means to your business. Whatever the matter, our attorneys apply their best efforts to achieving the solution that best serves the needs of our client.
