Prepared for Either Settlement or Litigation
For environmental law firms, success is generally defined as achieving a client's development and / or compliance objectives through a negotiated settlement with governmental entities. However, to achieve a settlement on reasonable terms, our attorneys have found that it is frequently necessary to demonstrate the strength of our clients' position in court or agency litigation proceedings. Negotiation through strength is the key to a winning strategy in this highly complex area.
