Property Division

If you have an environmental issue, it’s probably not a small, inconsequential matter. More likely, it’s a time-sensitive, critical issue that needs quick thinking and resolution. Our lawyers are ready to navigate efficiently and effectively through regulatory waters on behalf of business and government clients and achieve results that strike a balance between economic needs, environmental protection and ethical business practices.

With former environmental regulators and counsel for environmental agencies on our team, we have a deep knowledge and understanding of policies and laws ranging from air quality to wetlands permitting. We represent business owners, developers, municipalities, water management districts, individuals, engineers and contractors in handling the most complex environmental law issues. For example, we represent several high-rise developers in Sunny Isles Beach for high-end condominium approvals, developers of SoLe Mia in North Miami for more than 4,000 new residential units and over one million square feet of commercial and office development, and clients in Opa Locka, Florida, counseling on environmental clean-ups. We have also handled environmental permitting for Florida cities for the construction of Williams Island in Aventura, Fisher Island in Miami Beach, and Biscayne Landing in North Miami.

We pride ourselves on being your trusted and forthright advisor. In the event a client is subject to an enforcement proceeding, our attorneys have significant experience in handling environmental regulatory compliance and enforcement matters arising from routine facility inspections, accidental releases, permit violations, tree removal, mangrove alteration and other violations of environmental laws and regulations. We have successfully negotiated numerous settlement agreements concerning corrective action and penalties for violations of environmental regulations and permits.

Regardless of the nature of your environmental challenges, our attorneys are well positioned to help you chart a course to a successful resolution.
