Environmental Review and Permitting
Arnold & Porter helps public and private entities investing in major infrastructure projects to navigate through the thicket of applicable environmental laws and administrative processes in virtually every sector—including energy, power generation, transportation, commercial development, real estate, environmental infrastructure, and brownfields development. Our team draws on decades of experience in leadership positions in key federal and state agencies to plan for, secure and defend environmental permits. We have a well-established reputation for our work under both federal and state environmental review regimes (e.g., NEPA, SEQRA and CEQA), as well as all environmental review and permitting requirements. Knowing what will work, and what won't, allows us to be innovative and efficient in devising comprehensive strategies to see projects through from beginning to end, and to produce results that withstand legal challenge.
