As the regulatory framework develops around the global issue of climate change, many formerly acceptable business practices will need to change. Corporate transactions and disclosures, advertising and intellectual property, real estate transactions, tax credits and rebates, government policy and regulation—all of these areas will be affected by future efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To help clients address these challenges now and in to the future, we established a dedicated Climate Change practice group.
The Climate Change Group brings a forward-thinking approach to matters of energy, alternative fuels, land use and water supply. The group is a multidisciplinary practice that cuts through many traditional areas of the law, including natural resources, real estate, land use, energy, corporate law, tax, litigation and public policy. By combining resources from Brownstein’s well-established core practices, the Climate Change Group offers the right mix of experience and entrepreneurial spirit to thrive as a responsible environmental steward.
We have experience covering a wide spectrum of needs for energy projects, from siting to permitting to bringing plants online and products to market. Our scope of services includes industrial energy use counsel, regulatory compliance, corporate governance, carbon markets counsel, climate change litigation, government relations and land use.
