Environment / Natural Resources Strategies
Finding and getting to the solution
Many of the Pacific Northwest’s toughest problems occur at the intersection of law, public policy and the environment. Competing and often conflicting interests merge in the management of natural resources and the permitting of governmental or private projects. We offer innovative approaches and solutions in these areas: We deliver unparalleled experience and results in mediation and complex negotiations in natural resource controversies. Our expertise is deep in developing successful strategies for implementing natural resource laws and policies involving forestry systems, agricultural issues, fisheries, mitigation and permit compliance, water law, Indian law, habitat restoration and the Endangered Species Act. We also have had exceptional success developing and obtaining permits for complex and highly visible projects. When necessary, we effectively and aggressively secure, protect and enforce our clients' interests through arbitration or legal proceedings in state and federal courts. We work hard to understand our clients’ needs and solve their problems.
Businesses, tribes, state, local and federal governments are among the key entities we advise.
