Environmental Practice


Growing governmental regulations as well as environmental awareness and concern continue to force changes in the way companies operate.  Tesser & Cohen offers clients traditional environmental and planning law advice as well as representation in relation to environmental disputes that occur from time to time.

Tesser & Cohen assists in the resolution of disputes relating to soil contamination, asbestos abatement, cleaning agents, land development, and waste disposal. Our attorneys represent public and private clients in environmental civil litigation, under federal and state environmental laws and regulations, and in related insurance disputes.

As part of our commitment to provide clients with comprehensive environmental legal consulting, we also provide compliance and litigation avoidance assistance and work with our clients to develop appropriate protocols.  Governments have begun providing corporate environmental programs with tax breaks and subsidies, and have increased accountability standards with threats of sanctions. Tesser & Cohen is adept at negotiating with the appropriate public or private entities to resolve outstanding problems, negotiating and drafting purchase, lease, and financing agreements to minimize and/or allocate ongoing environmental liabilities, and structuring transactions so as to limit environmental risk.
