Department profile submitted by Morrison & Foerster LLP
The integrated group of environmental, natural resources and land use practitioners at Morrison & Foerster is one of the most well-rounded teams of its kind in the nation.
Our team serves clients in the development of energy, infrastructure and transportation projects and advises on product development and marketing. In addition, we defend litigation challenging such projects and products.
We take on the most complicated environmental problems our clients face and, when we go to court, we win. In one recent case, we saved our client billions of dollars in exposure relating to claims arising from federal and state laws governing airborne emissions.
Environmental cases involve a unique combination of extremely technical scientific and factual issues in an administrative and judicial arena that is unlike more traditional litigation. Our team’s combination of prior government service, scientific background, and knowledge of industrial and manufacturing processes gives us unparalleled insight into how to argue and win these cases.
We bring a wealth of experience to every matter, allied with the skills and knowledge to effectively communicate our clients’ scientific and technical information to government officials, public agencies, and judges.
