Welcome to Burr & Forman’s Environmental Law Matters Blog!

The complex system of environmental laws and regulations impact our clients’ businesses in a variety of contexts. Our attorneys regularly counsel clients on environmental legal issues arising in business strategy, regulatory compliance, permitting, transactions and resolution of disputes. Land conservation, historic preservation, brownfield redevelopment, environmental remediation, recycling, greenhouse gas, climate change, and regulation of air, water and wastes, all have the potential to pose challenges to corporate or real estate transactions. Our attorneys have a long history of handling such matters, and handling environmental cases in state and federal courts.  We have launched this blog to help our clients keep up with news, statutory changes, legal opinions and practical tips involving all areas of environmental law.

Because many of the laws relating to the regulation of environmental issues are state-specific, we will focus on developments in Burr & Forman’s Southeastern footprint of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, and Tennessee. However, we will also cover any particularly impactful or interesting events in other parts of the country and at the Federal level.

We hope that our clients, as well as other interested parties, will find this blog informative and entertaining and will make it a regular part of their reading. If you ever have a question about something on the blog or have an environmental legal issue, feel free to contact any of Burr & Forman’s Environmental team members, and we will be happy to assist you. If you need help in a state outside of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, or Tennessee, let us know. We have aligned our firm with trusted practices across the country and around the world, and we will get your questions answered at the right law firm.

Thanks for reading!
