Forchelli Environmental Blog Launched

October, 2011 (Uniondale, N.Y.) – We are pleased to present the Forchelli Environmental Law Blog: Our purpose is to combine environmental law news with analysis to provide a balanced understanding of the environmental issues facing businesses today.  We will discuss developments in the law that affect obligations or potential liabilities under specific environmental programs (e.g. CERCLA, RCRA, Clean Air Act) as well as developments in environmental issues that go beyond specific programs such as Climate Change and Sustainable Development.  Readers should also expect to see a significant amount of analysis so that we will not just be discussing new cases, we will be discussing new ideas regarding not so new cases.   Opinions stated in this blog are the opinions of the authors and not necessarily the opinions of the Firm.   Readers may also submit content in the form of news, analysis or feedback.   We look forward to thoughtful discussion of the issues with you.

Environmental Department
The Environmental Department advises clients on various compliance matters, including compliance with all major environmental programs (e.g. RCRA, CAA, CWA, Brownfields, etc.) and with regard to investigation and remediation of contaminated sites. Our environmental attorneys work with the transactional groups to structure transactions that minimize potential environmental liabilities and with the zoning and land use groups on SEQRA (environmental impact review) issues.
