Natural Resources and Water Law

Primary Contact: Brian Rosenthal

We have significant experience and expertise in state and federal environmental laws dealing with air and water pollution and hazardous waste cleanup. We regularly represent clients at the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality and the EPA in multiple regions to negotiate compliance with the relevant laws and regulations governing industry. We also defend legal actions brought by those agencies and represent groups in environmental litigation.

Protection of the environment and preservation of resources are key issues for our clients. We assist clients with federal and state actions and matters involving alleged natural resource damage; preservation of natural resources through NEPA and other reviews; and in a wide variety of state and federal water issues involving the EPA, Corps of Engineers, and the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission. Such actions include environmental impact review; water study and planning issues; and a variety of wetlands concerns.
