Overview

Our multidisciplinary team helps companies anticipate, monitor and respond to emerging issues related to green products, climate change, and use of renewable energy and alternative fuels.

Choosing to operate in a more environmentally sound and sustainable manner is a complex decision. Proactive risk consideration and allocation is essential. Public and private companies and nonprofit organizations struggling to assess the risks and opportunities of “going green” benefit from our group’s unique combination of experience in handling construction, environmental, climate change, intellectual property, product liability and consumer protection matters.

We guide clients through all phases of evaluating the effects of sustainable business practices, from defining and certifying products to complying with federal, state and local legislation and defending green claims in courtrooms across the country. Together with our firm’s intellectual property lawyers, we also provide counsel on securing trademarks for green products.
