Our firm has become a preeminent environmental law firm, representing the interests of landowners against polluters. This requires not only special trial skills but also an intimate knowledge of the complex laws and regulations impacting the ownership and control of real property and the use, possession and transportation of potential pollutants and waste. In addition, a detailed knowledge of the science background of this complex area is a key to success.
We’ve represented clients in both State and Federal Courts on environmental issues related to hazardous waste investigation, property damage, toxic torts, endangered species, and remediation of air, soil and groundwater. The attorneys have successfully prosecuted numerous individual groups and class action cases against large corporations and governmental bodies. We have also represented businesses and governmental bodies in both litigation and business transactions involving environmental issues.
The attorneys also represent clients in matters with the U.S. EPA, the Kansas Department of Health and Environment and other related state agencies. The firm has extensive experience in matters related to the environment, whether regulatory compliance, land use, structuring transactions to limit liability or, when necessary, litigation.
