“They really are at the top of their game, and there are no gaps in the firm’s knowledge,” commented one of our clients in Chambers. “No matter the issue, they have an attorney with invaluable expertise in that subject area.” Chambers interviewees also describe the group as “collaborative, responsive and good at keeping clients in the loop.”
Our team has served clients for decades on matters covering the landscape of energy infrastructure development, acquisition, financing, and regulation at the federal and state levels, as well as concerning critical litigation affecting the bottom line of our energy clients and their customers.
Our team represents client interests across many industries in litigation involving some of the largest and most complex environmental sites in the country and helps clients address issues impacting vital business transactions, including mergers and redevelopment projects.
As environmental and energy policies and considerations become increasingly interwoven, our team of Environment and Energy lawyers work to help clients make environmentally and economically wise choices and advise them on how current and proposed laws, regulations, and government policies could impact their businesses.

Environment & Energy TransactionsOpen
Clients rely on our ability to find practical solutions to help them complete transactions essential to their businesses. We are skilled negotiators who help clients implement deals, craft documents and reduce obstacles and risks that move initiatives and transactions forward.
Environmental Insurance CoverageOpen
We understand how important legacy and long-tail environmental insurance is to addressing past liabilities that arise in present day, or how important current insurance may be to allocating future environmental risks, facilitating liability transfers, ensuring finite cleanup costs, protecting multiple parties and completing a deal, particularly when environmentally impacted properties are involved. Together with our insurance recovery team, we negotiate with insurers to obtain coverage for legacy liabilities, secure current day policy terms, and work with the key insurers, underwriters, brokers and consultants to coordinate and manage a client’s environmental exposure. We have the experience and resolve necessary to pursue insurance coverage through litigation. In many instances, working with our insurance recovery team, we have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in settlement and judgments.
