Natural Resources Law

Adrian & Pankratz has attorneys experienced in natural resources law.  One facet of natural resources law is environmental law encompasses a complex range of federal statutes including the Clean Water Act (CWA), and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Practice in this area also demands knowledge of state laws relating to a variety of different issues impacting the environment. The firm usually deals with environmental law cases in an advisory role by helping business clients to proactively ensure compliance with these laws. If an individual or business’s practices run afoul of a federal statute dealing with protections to the environment, the federal government will often seek sanctions against the individual or business. Thus, a proactive approach to environmental regulations can save time, expenses, and strife in the long run.  In addition to environmental law, the firm also does a significant amount of water law and agricultural law.  These are both listed separately on the website under “Areas of Practice.” Adrian & Pankratz can serve your needs in this area.
