Environmental Compliance

We help clients understand and comply with environmental regulations and permit obligations. 

Knauf Shaw attorneys have worked closely  with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (NYSDEC) and clients for over 30 years to ensure our client’s compliance with NYSDEC statutory and regulatory obligations. Our attorneys provide cost-effective counsel on permit application and renewal matters.  We have also handled every stage of environmental enforcement matters, from Notice of Violation to hearings where necessary.  We have negotiated numerous consent orders and stipulations for our clients.
