What We Do
We help our clients find practical solutions to resolve environmental issues related to real estate and development, drawing on our decades of experience across the Pacific Northwest addressing state and federal environmental cleanups, prospective purchaser agreements, and real estate transactions and financing. We help clients at all stages of projects, assisting with due diligence to identify and resolve environmental issues early on, as well as advising on environmental issues that arise later during development. Our good relationships with regional environmental consultants and engineers facilitate seamless representation for clients on both the legal and technical issues. We work with clients and regulators to find efficient solutions and avoid litigation, but when disputes arise, we are seasoned environmental litigators with a track record of successfully pursuing and defending environmental cost-recovery and contribution actions on behalf of our clients. Whether our clients are working on urban infill properties, suburban housing projects, sediment-based properties, landfills, industrial properties, or public facilities, we guide our clients to successful, cost-effective resolutions of environmental issues.
