Environmental Compliance

Overview

At Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP, our attorneys assist businesses, developers, public utilities and local governments by providing a variety of environmental compliance services, including:

  • Counseling and regulatory interpretation
  • Assistance with compliance planning and reporting obligations
  • Conducting compliance audits
  • Defense of government enforcement actions and private suits

Since 1993 we have been proud to author the Environmental Compliance Handbook.

Our attorneys work closely with clients to provide advice and guidance on compliance questions. We also work proactively with clients to develop auditing programs that address issues of particular concern to the facility or the industry and to develop environmental compliance plans that mitigate risk. We counsel clients on reporting requirements at state and federal levels, as well as self-reporting and use of voluntary disclosure policies when appropriate. We have conducted audits under all the major environmental programs including the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, Emergency Planning and Community Right-To-Know Act and their state and local counterparts.

In the event of an alleged violation, our attorneys assist clients in developing the initial response to the claim and preparation for discussions with the agency or third party where an early resolution may be possible. When necessary, our attorneys are prepared to defend enforcement actions and citizen suits in all forums. The range of legal capabilities at Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP means we have the depth to support our clients throughout the environmental litigation process.

Whether you manage environmental compliance for a Fortune 100 company, are a developer, own a small business, are responsible for utility services, operate a farm, provide governmental services or are in the midst of a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we can help you tackle tough environmental compliance issues.
