One of the important areas we work in is environmental protection. We bring claims against corporations and individuals who are violating environmental protection laws and regulations. Neighborhoods, environmental protection groups, green businesses and others need legal assistance to protect the environment and keep our communities clean and safe.
At Bricklin & Newman LLP, we represent clients throughout Washington, Oregon and Idaho from our offices in Seattle and Spokane. With more than 80 years of combined experience between our five attorneys, we have a thorough understanding of the legal landscape of environmental law. Whether we need to negotiate with developers or litigate environmental issues for our clients, our attorneys bring knowledge and a strong commitment to helping the people who are helping our environment.
Our lawyers have a wealth of experience litigating environmental law issues for local individuals and groups who are working to protect the environment. These cases can include:
- Lawsuits against various individuals, businesses, governments, or other entities which are failing to comply with environmental regulations
- Lawsuits against federal, state and local government entities when they adopt new rules or implement them in violation of environmental or citizen participation requirements
- Lawsuits under the Clean Water Act, National Forest Management Act, Endangered Species Act, National and State Environmental Policy Acts, and Washington State Forest Practices Act
This is a small sampling of the types of environmental lawsuits we handle. In any type of litigation, we focus on efficient, precise preparation and getting results.
We care about the environment as much as our clients do, and we fight alongside our neighbors to protect it.
Our lawyers handle more than litigation. Whether it’s contract law, negotiations, policy work, compliance or related legal issues, we provide creative, innovative solutions for our clients in a wide range of legal matters. As a small law firm, we are able to remain nimble and provide our clients with personalized legal service and care. With decades of legal experience among our lawyers, we are able to win on behalf of our clients and the environment.
