Environmental – Enforcement/Litigation

The firm’s environmental litigation practice represent as many clients in NYC disputes with NYCDEC as any other in the region. 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 environmental lawyers in the firm have successfully fought off more storm water litigation claims by Riverkeeper-Baykeeper than any other firm in recent years. 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.
