Cambridge Mobile Lawyer - We provide comprehensive services in environmental law services, providing quick and efficient assistance to our clients. Among the areas that we cover pertain to environmental compliance, transactional work, and civil and regulatory disputes.
In each of our regional offices we have a group of environmental law practitioners who are completely knowledgeable in several practice orientations, like for example forestry matters and Fisheries Act issues, municipal law, energy regulation, land expropriation, and insurance litigation. We are skilled in the commercial applications of Environmental Law and could help with the environmental aspects of financing, acquisitions, and re-organizations.
For our several private and public sector clients, we regularly assist them with environmental management systems development, remediation projects completion and compliance review. Our experience includes the following: regulation of water and air emissions, remediation of complex soil and groundwater contamination, approval of engineered processes, and import/export and transport of regulated substances.
Our practitioners are experienced transactions lawyers, representing clients in the negotiation of complicated acquisitions, divestitures, and financings. We help in real estate transactions including re-development, leasing, and financings, along with brownfields acquisitions. Structuring and managing comprehensive environmental due diligence exercises on a national basis needs a high level of expertise and skill. Our knowledge in this area helps our clients formulate sensible and innovative business solutions to environmental issues.
We have a great deal of experience dealing with disputes that have arisen from pollution incidents which result in personal injury and property damage. We help in solving forestry problems, environmental protests, insurance claims, class action suits, and court proceedings concerning contaminated site clean-ups.
We can act as counsel when major environmental claims have triggered insurance coverage issues. Like for instance, we provide counsel and opinions for those problems related to contamination of landfill sites, large industrial facilities, major flooding events, industrial explosions, asbestos claims, and different significant incidents with adverse impacts on the environment.
Our lawyers advise and act for proponents of projects requiring environmental approvals under provincial and federal environmental assessment legislation. Our work comprises the representation of clients in relation to electric transmission lines, petrochemical plants, hydro electric and thermal generating stations (comprising combined cogeneration and cycle plants), upstream gas and oil facilities (consisting of gathering pipelines, production and exploratory wells, gas plants, and oil batteries), natural gas pipeline facilities, oil sands development, and oil, high vapour pressure natural gas liquid facilities. We likewise offer services for parties affected by these types of projects.
Our knowledgeable teams of lawyers cover various resource development and energy-connected applications and proceedings representing gas and oil businesses, provincially and federally regulated pipeline businesses, petrochemical manufacturers, government and privately owned water, electric, and natural gas utilities. We also work extensively along with First Nations on project approvals.
