Environmental & Water

We understand that solving environmental issues can be complex and technical. To solve those issues and problems, we offer a cohesive team of attorneys that will work efficiently to help you navigate the gauntlet of federal, state, and local government agencies to get your project permitted. We work closely with our real estate attorneys and our land use attorneys to achieve success. And when we must, we have a team of litigators and civil and property rights attorneys to enforce your rights in court.

We understand that each client has a different goal for each property, and we work to achieve those goals by putting together sophisticated teams of professionals. We have strong ties to planners, scientists, and engineers across Florida and can help you achieve your goals for your property.

Our firm’s size gives us the flexibility to help clients of any size work though their environmental issues. We have worked for some of Florida’s largest power generators, natural gas pipeline operators, agribusinesses, mining companies, and home builders. We have also worked for hobby farmers, mom-and-pop real estate developers, and family-run manufacturers.
