Gilberti Stinziano Heintz & Smith PC has redefined the scope of authority of federal and state environmental regulatory agencies to regulate commerce and industry. We’ve successfully challenged government regulation and other imposed restrictions through litigation in state and federal courts and in administrative forums.
We have 45 years of experience handling environmentally sensitive projects and developing strategies and transaction structures to minimize exposure to environmental review and permitting risk. Our practice groups coordinate seamlessly, providing comprehensive legal counsel from project concept through development and ultimate completion.
We advise our clients on innovative and practical ways to facilitate development projects including actively shaping the approval process, obtaining public funding, private financing and tax incentives, and managing environmentally and publicly sensitive matters.
