Environmental, Water and Natural Resources

Nebraska is endowed with abundant water and natural resources. We help our clients protect and defend their environmental interests.

What We Do

Our state’s natural resources are a valuable asset. Our attorneys advise clients on the protection of rights to water and other natural resources. We have experience in working with the Nebraska Department of Natural Resources, Nebraska Department of Environment and Energy, Environmental Protection Agency, other administrative bodies on compliance, permitting, and remediation.  Our team counsels clients concerning the adequacy of environmental due diligence associated with real estate transactions and development.  Our approach is simple: provide competent, proactive advice to our clients regarding regulatory interpretation and compliance, anticipate potential environmental considerations in all aspects of business planning, vigorously represent our clients before federal and state regulatory agencies, and defend our clients’ interests in the event litigation becomes necessary.  When it comes to environmental, water, and natural resource issues, we find the way.
