Practical Regulatory Counseling Backed by Technical Knowledge

Even the most responsibly run companies can face compliance risks and other environmental liabilities from transactions, rule changes, enhanced agency scrutiny, or increasingly complex reporting requirements.

Kelley Drye environmental lawyers’ deep experience representing some of the most heavily regulated industries gives us the insight necessary to help clients proactively manage risks through due diligence, environmental management systems, and compliance auditing.

We’ve steered dozens of companies and industry groups with their most complex environmental regulatory, compliance, permitting, and enforcement matters, and we would appreciate the opportunity to use that experience to help you as well.

Regardless of whether it involves agency advocacy, permitting, compliance counseling, or enforcement, we find ways to help clients best position themselves to minimize environmental risks, avoid compliance pitfalls, and operate effectively in a challenging regulatory environment.

Representing Government Entities in High-Profile Environmental Litigation

For more than 25 years, our litigators have represented states, port authorities, and other government entities in the most sophisticated and largest contamination and natural resource damages cases in the United States.

We represent plaintiffs and defendants in clean-up, natural resource damages, cost-recovery actions, and insurance recovery cases under federal environmental laws—such as CERCLA—and similar state law actions.

Our nationally recognized PFAS team represents more than a dozen states and sovereign entities, together with dozens more water providers and private sector clients, in high-stakes litigation related to PFAS contamination from industrial sources and aqueous film-forming foam (AFFF).
