Environmental Regulation

Ryan Whaley Coldiron Jantzen Peters & Webber has earned regional and national recognition as one of the premier law Firms practicing in the complex field of environmental law. The Firm has an exceptionally strong core of experienced energy and environmental attorneys. Our attorneys have extensive experience with a wide range of disciplines involving environmental legal work in all media (air, water, waste, etc.), including regulatory, permitting, compliance, enforcement, litigation, insurance coverage, transactions, and due diligence.

Our national environmental regulatory practice, combined with our other practice areas—litigation, energy and natural resources, and transactional work—provides our clients with a coordinated approach to meeting their legal environmental needs. We advise both local and nationally based clients on the environmental and legal implications related to virtually every type of business, particularly manufacturing, energy, oil and gas, mining, electricity, and renewable energy.

We assist our clients to interpret and satisfy regulatory requirements by identifying and obtaining the proper permits needed for compliance with state and federal requirements, developing plans for documenting compliance, creating record retention programs, planning for inspections, and self-reporting under state and federal audit privileges. We regularly consult with technical experts who are leaders in their respective fields and support our clients in contracting with and coordinating work with consultants, developing work plans for site investigations, and implementing corrective actions and work plans. We regularly represent our clients before local, state, and federal environmental agencies, as well as related agencies with jurisdiction over environmental, energy, and natural resource issues, on matters involving environmental permitting and compliance.

Our environmental attorneys include lawyers with degrees in engineering, environmental science, and other technical disciplines, as well as several with an L.L.M. in environmental law. Because of our background and experience, we are able to communicate both the science and the law to our clients. Our attorneys are also regularly called upon to speak at seminars and business conferences throughout the United States.
