We achieve solutions for businesses facing environmental regulation and for their insurers.
Continuing economic development in the Southwest requires our clients to find environmental solutions to problems that affect industries doing business in the region.

In addressing these concerns, our attorneys assess new and existing laws, rules and regulations dealing with environmental issues and their impact on a variety of businesses and industries.
Insurance coverage for environmental losses presents new challenges to insurance carriers. Our litigation attorneys have extensive expertise in representing carriers in litigating and resolving claims for coverage under their policies.
Enforcement of air quality requirements has greatly expanded in recent years, resulting in many citations for dust control abatement and other measures. Our attorneys have a successful track record in defending companies accused of air quality violations.
