With efficiency and a deal-making (not deal-breaking) approach, Brown Rudnick lawyers handle complex environmental issues. Whether itâs buying, selling, negotiating with regulators, or litigating, we work as problem solvers. Our clients trust us to bring the talent, the tools and the relationships to get things done. Our lawyers have worked at the highest levels of government and in the private sector. Among our ranks are a former Special Assistant to the US EPA Administrator, a former Chair and General Counsels to the MA Department of Telecommunications and Energy (now the DPU), and a former Assistant General Counsel at a major regulated utility. Team members have also gained experience at the Department of Justice, state Energy Facilities Siting Boards, and, as legal and legislative liaison to federal regulatory agencies. Add to this our close work with our energy and real estate lawyers, and, in sum, you tap a “can-do” combination of talent, business savvy and creativity.
At Brown Rudnick, we combine ingenuity with experience to achieve great outcomes for our clients. We deliver partner-driven service; we incentivize our lawyers to collaborate in the client’s best interest; and we put excellence before scale, focusing on practices where we are recognized leaders. In the real estate sector, we represent Fortune 500 to regional companies, major lending institutions and developers, large organizations and telecommunication firms, managing the full spectrum of their real estate needs and concerns. We represent developers in projects located throughout the United States. Office buildings, office parks, shopping centers, research and life sciences complexes, industrial projects, mixed-use and re-use developments, and multi-family rental housing are just a few examples of the kinds of projects where Brown Rudnick’s broad experience and familiarity with local, state and federal regulatory issues have made important contributions to clients’ success.
