Environmental Law: An Overview
During your regular business day, you manage or oversee many issues related to finances, human resources, operations, strategic planning and more. There are so many things to think about in the normal course of business — you don’t need to worry about an environmental lawsuit, too. But if your company processes involve any sort of waste generation or disposal — for example, heavy industrial manufacturing, chemical production, or even dry cleaners or printers — there are many environmental laws that you need to be aware of.
Whether you’re facing pending litigation or trying to establish good practices to comply with regulations and avoid legal action, you need an attorney who is well-versed in environmental law to help you navigate the process. Dungan & LeFevre provides litigation, regulatory advice, counseling and dispute resolution services for companies and individuals related to local, state and federal environmental laws (e.g., CAA, CWA, CERCLA, EPCRA, FIFRA, RCRA and TSCA).
To set up a consultation regarding your specific case, call 937-770-6225 or contact us by email. We have offices in Troy, Ohio, and represent clients statewide. The attorneys at our firm who handle environmental law issues are Steven Justice and Michael Scarpelli.
