Overview

Successfully navigating the environmental regulatory landscape requires both knowledge and relationships within the environmental industry. At Munsch Hardt, our attorneys bring that – and much more.

We believe the key to compliance counseling, permitting and enforcement counseling is a deep knowledge and understanding of environmental law and regulation. At the outset, we assist in preventing potential environmental violations. Through audits, health and safety compliance, risk-management planning and simple day-to-day advice, our attorneys help guide our clients through the environmental standards that apply to their businesses and help them understand how those standards are interpreted and applied by environmental agencies. To this end, we monitor agencies’ development and application of policies and enforcement initiatives. Our strategies and experience are directed at preventing problems and finding creative, cost-effective solutions for our clients.
