It is difficult for many small and medium sized companies to stay abreast of environmental laws and regulations. In fact, many may become aware of the existence of a particular law when they are the subject of a lawsuit claiming environmental damage. Others may not be aware of their air and water rights or their liability for industrial discharge. It is important to have an attorney who can advise you about the best course of action to take in such circumstances.
Conversely, you may suspect that your property, business or family is being affected by environmental pollution. In instances such as these, it is advisable to speak with an environmental lawyer who can assess whether you have a case.
