Resolving environmental disputes requires substantive knowledge and skill, collaboration, and creative thinking. That is the foundation on which Michael Best has built an impressive record representing clients in administrative and judicial enforcement proceedings, citizen suits, cost recovery actions, and other environmental litigation.
Because environmental lawsuits can be messy and expensive, we aggressively implement mediation and other strategies for pre-litigation resolution whenever feasible. If and when litigation must proceed, we have a deep bench of first-chair trial lawyers who are skilled in managing cases cost-effectively and getting good results.
In the courtroom and at the negotiating table, we work closely with client decision makers, technical staff, and outside consultants to find the best path to achieve each client’s goals. Valuable perspective is provided by our environmental attorneys who previously served in public sector positions overseeing rules promulgation, such as senior positions in regulatory agencies.
