Environmental Law And Regulation
Complex federal, state and even local environmental laws and regulations can have a broad impact on land and water protection and development efforts. Navigating these complex laws and the intricate jurisdictional web, can be challenging for environmental protection groups and property owners alike. Wheeler’s land and water team keeps abreast of changes to this constantly evolving area of law and provides comprehensive advice and representation to our clients. We draft legislation, represent clients at public hearings, bring our clients claims in court and defend our clients’ positions when needed, and we help our clients organize and strategize for the big picture. Our specific experience includes representing groups seeking to protect their land and water supply from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), helping clients develop lake management plans, crafting local resource preservation ordinances and litigation to protect Public Trust property.
