AREAS OF PRACTICE

 

Environmental

Since our beginning, the environmental attorneys with Sullivan PC have maintained a very strong environmental practice. The firm accomplished a very rare pre-trial dismissal of the politically-charged, first environmental criminal prosecution ever brought by Robert Kennedy, Jr. and the Brooklyn District Attorney. The firm was the lead defense counsel in the environmental prosecutions concerning athletic field development in Westchester County and a significant portion of the upstate farm land prosecutions. The firm has become a leader in the defense of environmental criminal prosecutions.

The firm’s environmental practice is both comprehensive and deep, ranging from the spectrum of wetland violations, to marine coastal development, to complex contamination remediation disputes. Sullivan PC is environmental counsel to the NYC concrete industry association and one of the two law firms with substantial expertise in the environmental regulation of solid waste in the New York City metropolitan region.
