We work closely with clients throughout the US. We have represented mine operators in the full range of environmental issues, including public land access and use rights and approvals; siting; permitting; developing impact statements; endangered species matters; defending government and citizen suit enforcement actions; and resolving property disputes.
Our expertise includes National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) processes, Interior Board of Land Appeals (IBLA) cases and the full spectrum of negotiations with state and federal land management agencies. We have assisted clients with the establishment of mine claims, rail and road project site access, rights-of-way and approvals of port infrastructure.
We have worked with all major federal land management agencies, including the US Department of Interior (DOI), US Bureau of Land Management (BLM), US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the US Forest Service (USFS). Furthermore, we have worked with all of the state land management agencies in the Midwest and western US.
