New York Environmental Lawyers
Environmental issues are affecting the lives of New Yorkers now more than ever. The New York environmental lawyers at Morgan & Morgan understand the legal complexities behind these concerns and are passionate about protecting people and the environment. Here, learn how we can assist you as an individual or corporation in the state of New York.
Environmental Risks for Businesses
Businesses and corporations face higher environmental risks due to economies of scale. Company owners do not have the time or the expertise to parse through and ensure they’re complying with the myriad environmental regulations. These requirements exist on both local and federal levels — neglecting to comply with these laws means facing steep fines and negative public attention.
An environmental attorney in New York can provide individualized guidance on compliance issues so business owners can implement strategies that adhere to all regulations. Morgan & Morgan relies on transparency and will explain everything you need to do in clear language.
Our attorneys can also perform facility audits to make sure compliance standards are met. Audits identify gaps in compliance so companies can rectify concerns before a formal investigation.
Moreover, businesses are responsible for the cost of cleaning up problems. For example, if a New York business property is polluted, the current property owner must mitigate the environmental issue on their own dime. An environmental attorney may be able to recover costs to alleviate the financial hit of an environmental cleanup.
Businesses may be on the defensive end of a lawsuit if environmental agencies allege contamination of the water supply or improper disposal of hazardous waste. In such cases, having the right legal representation on your side can make all the difference.
Environmental Law Services for Individuals
For individuals, we primarily offer environmental real estate guidance, which can assist property developers, landlords, tenants, and other parties involved in real estate transactions. We provide guidance on related issues, too, such as restoring brownfields, investigating and remediating environmental issues, disposing of hazardous chemicals, and environmental reporting.
