Clients rely on our environment and energy team to anticipate and advise them on the strategic implications of their business and litigation decisions and emerging challenges. Our lawyers advise our clients from a strong understanding of each client, the client’s business, and the key issues that drive their businesses.
Environmental impacts, including from legacy liabilities, are a key consideration in today’s business arena, and costly proceedings can result when companies overlook addressing environmental factors, or are not prepared to respond to these challenges. McCarter’s environmental team develops sound strategies to avoid, minimize, or respond to past and future environmental liabilities. Our group provides innovative and cost-effective legal representation covering civil litigation, regulatory administrative matters, and counseling on all kinds of transactions, as well as compliance counseling, and permitting.
Energy Strategic CounselingOpen
Our energy clients look to us to assist and counsel them in industries in which essential transactions are negotiated and entered into against a backdrop of federal and state regulation and where the best of business plans can be buffeted by outside economic forces, technical advances, and environmental considerations. Our energy lawyers assist clients in navigating the legal and regulatory complexities of regional energy markets and selecting and acquiring portfolios of resources to reliably, responsibly, and economically meet the energy demands of their customers and communities. We help guide clients toward business rather than litigation solutions wherever possible.
We assist clients in executing their plans, ranging from negotiating transactional agreements to investing in or siting and installing renewable energy projects to pursuing energy efficiency programs, including those covering demand response programs and renewable energy credits.
