Environmental and Land Use

The increasing scope and complexity of environmental and land use laws can turn a routine residential or commercial project into a slow moving, expensive process. Environmental issues can arise under MTCA and CERCLA when a property is found to be contaminated, and in turn can trigger insurance coverage issues. Or, a interested party may pursue judicial review of a land use decision, by filing a Land Use Petition Act (“LUPA”) appeal in the superior court. In either setting, our clients need, and benefit from, detailed analysis and application of environmental, zoning, and development regulations, and practical solutions with the regulatory bodies and other interested parties.
