Foley Hoag’s environmental attorneys handle all aspects of environmental disputes, from pre-suit negotiations, to litigation and trial, to alternative forms of dispute resolution, such as mediation and arbitration. We represent clients in forums from adjudicatory proceedings before federal and state agencies to litigation in state and federal courts and international proceedings before global institutions such as the International Court of Justice in The Hague and International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes. While the range of our environmental cases is broad, in each case we work with our client to develop a strategy tailored to advance our clients’ strategic goals.
We also counsel clients on how to avoid environmental litigation through comprehensive compliance and auditing programs.
We have been recognized since 2003 as a “Band 1” environmental law practice in Massachusetts in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, and have been designated as a top practice every year, from 2003-2022. We also maintain the leading "Law and the Environment" blog, with regular updates on legislative, regulatory and judicial developments affecting environmental issues.
