The Environmental Strategies Group represents applicants in all aspects of the environmental permitting process, from scoping regulatory and permitting requirements across all media and disciplines during the early stages of project planning, to pre-application counseling and application development, negotiating permit terms and conditions with permitting agencies, working with consultants and stakeholders during the administrative review process to ensure timely permit issuance, and negotiating reasonable settlements with project opponents to help our clients reach project milestones and avoid negative publicity. Throughout this process, we focus on strengthening permit applications and bolstering the administrative record to help bulletproof project permits against potential challenges. Our lawyers regularly defend permits in contested-case proceedings and administrative and judicial appeals. Where appropriate, we assist clients in proactively engaging organizations and communities seeking to slow or derail the permit process.
