The pace of change for air and climate change regulations creates both risk and opportunity for clients. We develop and implement proactive strategies with clients to influence legislative and regulatory developments in the countries and regions where our clients’ business interests are most affected. Our legislative and regulatory experience deepens our capacity to help solve the challenges and seize the opportunities presented by the evolving response to climate change and air quality. This depth pervades the services we offer, including legislative and regulatory advocacy, rulemaking challenges and appellate proceedings; permitting business growth and innovation; compliance counseling; carbon and emission trading; and power siting and development.
As experienced litigators in Clean Air Act and Industrial Emission Directive matters, we project a position of strength when seeking favorable resolutions for clients facing enforcement actions and other legal challenges. We partner with our clients to understand their businesses, as well as the full measure of their legal options to build successful outcomes. The technical challenges of the air quality and climate change practice require the type of commitment and focus that our professionals have demonstrated over decades of work in this complex area. Our lawyers add most value when involved early in the process, such as when developing a strategy to support innovative business growth with air quality or climate consequences, or when auditing compliance status with air permits and rules, or when responding to an agency information request or initial complaint that initiates potential adversarial proceedings. Our air quality and climate change team brings a global reputation for excellence to serve your business needs.
