Environment, Public Lands, and Conservation

Environmental and conservation law is the core of our practice at Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell.  We have wide-ranging experience in assisting clients with environmental cleanup, compliance, permitting, enforcement, and defense under the “alphabet soup” of environmental statutes addressing pollution and chemical exposure, including the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), and the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts.

A significant portion of our practice is devoted to the legal requirements and mechanisms addressing conservation and environmental protection, including environmental impact reviews under the National Environmental Protection Act (NEPA) and state NEPA laws, the Endangered Species Act, the Migratory Bird Treaty Act, conservation easement law, and the suite of statutes protecting and governing use of public lands.
