The firm's environmental and natural resources attorneys provide counseling and representation to a wide variety of clients affected by environmental issues. These include public utilities, industrial and manufacturing companies, construction companies and real estate developers, among others.
Waldrep, Stewart & Kendrick attorneys represent clients in administrative proceedings before local, state, and federal agencies and in litigation before state and federal courts. We are actively engaged in both state and federal legislative processes affecting environmental and natural resources issues and the related administrative rule-making proceedings. Of particular importance to many clients is our day-to-day consultation on the issues of environmental permitting and compliance.
In addition to a working knowledge of the laws, regulations, and political climate, this area of law requires familiarity with the client's operations as well as close cooperation in the preparation of permit applications and compliance filings, the design and implementation of compliance programs, and the evaluation of long-range corporate goals and business plans.
We anticipate significant growth in the firm's environmental practice in order to meet the increasingly critical needs of clients in this complex and rapidly expanding area of law.
