Areas of Practice

Environmental Law

Daley Mohan Groble’s national Environmental Practice offers diverse environmental services, which range from compliance and transactional counseling to enforcement defense and litigation. We recognize that environmental issues sometimes arise in a complex operational and regulatory setting and draw on the multi-disciplinary skills and experience of DMG attorneys.

We advise clients in all major traditional environmental statutes and media, including the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, as well as the Hazardous Materials Transportation Act. DMG represents clients in administrative and enforcement proceedings. The environmental compliance counseling we provide is seasoned with both litigation and in-house corporate experience for a practical approach to effective implementation. Our litigation, enforcement and dispute resolution experience give real context for risk management, audit programs and root cause analysis. Where indicated, we assist with rule-making or regulatory challenges.

In addition to the regulatory environmental practice, DMG provides transactional counseling in acquisitions, leases, easements, dispositions and financing with respect to contaminated property. We also counsel in real estate and project development requiring wetlands or other permits which trigger Environmental Impact Statements or other assessments under the National Environmental Policy Act and the Endangered Species Act.

We also assess our clients’ legal risks and obligations for remediation of contaminated property under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (Superfund) and similar state statutes. We litigate toxic tort (both property damage and personal injury), enforcement and environmental claims, including those involving complex remediation sites with multiple sources and potentially responsible parties. We understand the interface between toxic tort, OSHA, workplace safety and environmental regulatory claims which can all operate concurrently at the same site.
