Allen & Desnoyers LLP assists developers and companies with a diverse array of environmental matters and natural resources law, from both compliance and business transaction perspectives. Our attorneys have worked, led and taught in the environmental arena for decades, and have an experienced understanding of the complex network of regulations and unique proceedings established under both State and federal environmental laws. They are well-known and respected in the areas of brownfields and environmental remediation; urban redevelopment; water regulation; riparian and navigation rights; and natural gas production, having held leadership positions in these areas both in and outside of State government.
