There is a saying: "If it's not grown, it is mined." An incredible variety of products that we rely on every day, from highways to mobile phones, rely on materials taken from the ground. Mining is a unique land use that presents special challenges for mining companies and government agencies. We are proud of our work in the extractive industries and of the breadth of expertise that we offer through years of experience in this field.
Our land use and environmental law practice focuses on all aspects of urban, industrial and residential land development. Our expertise spans from project planning through the entitlements stage, and includes litigation to defend our clients' entitlements. Our land use practice is unique: because the firm specializes in environmental and land use matters, our attorneys are proven experts in their fields.
Our practice encompasses land use and environmental permitting, air quality, cultural resources, hazardous waste, water law, endangered species, and litigation under the major federal and state statutes. We also bring strong relationships with respected engineers, geologists, biologists and other consultants and can help to apply those resources in service of our clients.
