Kaplan Kirsch & Rockwell represents public and private clients in high-stakes environmental disputes across the country at all levels of state and federal courts, as well as in administrative forums. Our work encompasses cutting-edge issues of environmental, land use, transportation, administrative and constitutional law.
Unlike many law firms, our litigation practice includes both enforcement of environmental laws and defense of environmental reviews, project authorizations and hazardous substance response actions. We litigate on behalf of clients with various interests, including regulators and other public agencies, private entities, tribes and public interest organizations. This broad experience helps our litigators bring a distinctive strategic perspective to environmental disputes of all kinds.
Our litigation team has experience with all major environmental laws and a full spectrum of environmental issues and natural resources, including matters arising under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act (CWA), Endangered Species Act, National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), Section 4(f) of the Department of Transportation Act, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and the Federal Land Policy and Management Act (FLPMA), as well as state and local laws and ordinances.
