Environmental Law

Savvy Counsel That Ensures You Adhere To State And Federal Environmental Laws At All Times

California businesses, both large and small, are faced with the need to comply with a multitude of onerous and ever-changing environmental regulations at the state and federal level. Businesses found in noncompliance face serious penalties, even if the errors are unintentional.

At Lerner & Weiss APC, our environmental law attorneys provide all of our business clients with the legal knowledge and support necessary to ensure compliance with all state and federal environmental regulations.

While our goal is to prevent expensive litigation, we are prepared to go to bat for our clients when issues need to be litigated. We work tirelessly for our clients to obtain the best possible outcomes, while working diligently to minimize risk and reduce the impact of litigation on the daily running of the business.

Defense Against Environmental Enforcement Actions

State and federal prosecutorial agencies, ranging from the Office of the U.S. Attorney to the California Attorney General’s Office, file both civil and criminal actions against businesses who they allege have violated environmental regulations.

Some of the actions allege improper hazardous waste disposal or transportation and hazardous materials compromising worker safety.

Defense Against Toxic Tort Actions

In this developing area of law, our environmental law attorneys aggressively defend clients against allegations that real property has been damaged, or individuals have personally been injured, by hazardous materials and/or groundwater contamination.

We also work diligently to see that your environmental insurance provides coverage for your litigation costs.
