Environmental concerns are inseparable from real estate development and industrial operations, and the lawyers of Krieg DeVault’s Environmental Practice Group are skilled at integrating operational practicalities with regulatory compliance and client goals, whether for a business deal, a development project, or a manufacturing facility. We assist builders, real estate developers and industrial, manufacturing, commercial, retail, health care, and banking clients with the full range of environmental issues involving construction, sale, purchase, lease, and development transactions. We provide advice, problem-solving, and process development and compliance resources for ongoing operational and manufacturing requirements. The members of our environmental team triage client environmental health and safety needs ranging from planning to project development to infrastructure to operations. We take an integrated approach that offers full-service counseling that includes unique and distinct real estate and environmental issues, whether involving structuring and financing a development deal or permitting, and compliance/enforcement with federal and state environmental or safety regulations.
