Environmental Legislation and Regulations

Succeeding in business today requires more than just complying with environmental laws and regulations as they currently exist.  It also requires knowing where future environmental laws and regulations are heading.  Staying abreast of pending legal requirements allows businesses to plan for their implementation and provides the opportunity to help shape those requirements so as to ensure the end results promote good environmental stewardship, economic growth, and common sense. 

ELG attorneys stay at the forefront of developing and future environmental law trends so we may help clients affect those trends and prepare for their future implementation.
