Colleges and universities face a unique challenge as they expand their campuses to meet the demands of faculty and students and strive to comply with regulations governing their diverse activities.
In pursuing their core goals of providing high-quality educational instruction to their students, colleges and universities lease, purchase, and develop land, build roads and infrastructures, generate electricity, treat wastewater, generate hazardous waste, and create whole new industries and products.
When necessary, the Firm’s litigators stand ready to assist in pursuing the institution’s goals, whether they are defending against regulatory enforcement actions, litigating appeals of denied permits, or defending against claims of environmental contamination.
We assist Colleges and Universities in:
Permitting and compliance of water and wastewater treatment systems
Land Use, Development, and Real Estate
Local and state permit application for construction and rehabilitation
Site selection and transaction documentation
Contracts with designers, contractors, and suppliers
Green building, sustainable development, and alternative energy
