Our dedicated team of attorneys assists clients by providing strategic counsel on all environmental media areas, including air, water, and solid/hazardous waste compliance, empowering clients to navigate regulatory complexities seamlessly.

Our attorneys guide clients through the intricacies of state and federal permitting procedures, offering comprehensive support for compliance challenges and requirements. Our team is well-versed in the nuances of each permitting process and the regulatory authorities that oversee them to ensure your projects align with regulatory standards and proceed smoothly.

We assist clients with the following:

Compliance Strategies: In complex regulatory engagements, our attorneys routinely collaborate with in-house counsel, plant personnel, and consultants. This collaborative approach allows us to gain a deep understanding of our client's business needs and facilitates the development of cost-effective compliance strategies tailored to their unique requirements.

Comprehensive Permitting Guidance: Our extensive experience encompasses a deep familiarity with Ohio and federal environmental permits and approvals, including surface water permits such as permits to install NPDES permits and pretreatment permits; underground storage tank permitting with BUSTR; air pollution control permits; and solid and hazardous waste permits. We assist clients by helping to secure environmental permits for both new and existing industrial, commercial, and publicly-owned facilities. We also routinely advise clients on questions regarding environmental liability and strategies for minimizing risk.

Negotiation and Appeals: Our commitment to client success extends to negotiating advantageous permit conditions. In instances where disputes arise, our seasoned attorneys leverage their experience to appeal disputed permit conditions and requirements when needed. We strive to secure outcomes that align with our client's business objectives while ensuring compliance with environmental laws.

Administrative and Judicial Representation: Our attorneys are experienced in representing clients in administrative and judicial proceedings involving regulatory interpretation. Whether advocating for your interests before government agencies or litigating in court, we leverage our deep understanding of environmental law to help secure favorable outcomes for our clients.

Government Relations: Our lawyers are practitioners and influencers in environmental law development. We were intimately involved with the implementation of House Bill 592, which revolutionized the solid waste business in Ohio over 30 years ago. We actively participate in agency advisory groups, contributing insights to shape Ohio regulations. Moreover, our representation extends to engaging with the Ohio General Assembly and various government agencies, advising and commenting on pending laws and rules.
