Environmental Law

Almost every business activity involves some aspect of environmental laws and regulations. Whether purchasing real estate, building new facilities, considering a merger or acquisition, or implementing new processes and operations, clients need environmental counsel that understands the complex interplay between business objectives and regulatory requirements.

Evans & Dixon’s environmental attorneys have vast experience advising companies on the environmental issues that arise in the course of commercial activities. Much of this experience has been gained firsthand while working in regulatory agencies and as in-house corporate counsel. As a result, we understand the goals of corporations and regulators alike, enabling us to provide cost-effective, business-focused legal solutions.

Our clients range from major manufacturers, small businesses and local governments, to real estate developers, individual investors, non-profit organizations and financial institutions. We provide broad-spectrum legal counsel on key areas of environmental compliance, reporting and enforcement, including the following:

When disputes with regulators, law enforcement agencies, local municipalities, vendors, suppliers and other parties threaten clients’ day-to-day and mission-critical activities, our litigators are prepared to mount a rapid, aggressive defense that can help clients maintain normal operations. We have represented clients in civil and criminal litigation in numerous administrative, state and federal venues on matters relating to Superfund liability, hazardous waste and toxic torts, and on issues arising out of contracts relating to environmental matters.

Our attorneys have held leadership roles in numerous environmental law committees of business organizations and bar associations, have taught environmental law at academic institutions and in seminars for lawyers and other professionals, and have written extensively on a wide range of environmental topics.

Client Testimonials

When we have a case or a situation where we need expert legal counsel, I know my staff can pick up the phone and quickly speak with one of our attorneys at Evans & Dixon. We can get a credible opinion about where we are and what our exposure is. They listen to our situation and if necessary, do the research to help us understand what our risks are and what avenues are needed to pursue.
