Thompson Hine's national environmental practice supports clients in environmental matters involving litigation, enforcement defense, regulatory compliance and permitting, environmental remediation, brownfields redevelopment, and corporate and real estate transactions across the United States. We have in-depth experience that spans all facets of environmental regulation.
Our practice is nationally recognized for providing efficient representation in environmental litigation matters; strategic defense in enforcement actions; and practical advice on regulatory compliance and permitting, environmental remediation, brownfields redevelopment, and corporate and real estate transactions. Our lawyers have assisted many clients in developing effective environmental, health and safety management systems, compliance auditing programs and other proactive risk management tools.
Our in-depth litigation experience spans claims under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA, or Superfund Act), Clean Water Act (CWA), Clean Air Act (CAA), Endangered Species Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and other federal, state and local land use and environmental statutes.
Thompson Hine acts as national environmental counsel for numerous companies, providing comprehensive EHS services across the United States, including litigation, enforcement defense, compliance consulting, permitting, auditing assistance and remediation advice. We are different from other environmental professionals because we strive to become a member of a client’s team by learning its business, goals and objectives. By integrating ourselves within the company, we can proactively identify areas of noncompliance or suggest improvements to minimize the risks of receiving penalties, notices of violation or other agency orders. Our overall goal is help clients meet their objectives concerning environmental compliance and management of risks.
