NEPA and Other Environmental Reviews

Keeping Projects Moving Forward Through the Permit and Environmental Review Process

Our lawyers regularly represent clients seeking federal permits, licenses, and authorizations in connection with projects and transactions that may affect the environment. In many cases, the federal approval process triggers review under federal statutes related to protecting natural resources or protected species, including the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), Clean Water Act, the Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), Marine Mammal Protection Act (MMPA) and the Migratory Bird Treaty Act (MBTA), as well as state equivalents, such as the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and Washington State Environmental Policy Act (SEPA). Marten’s deep experience in permitting, compliance enforcement, and the various review processes help us keep projects on track. We work with clients to successfully manage all phases and aspects of the review process, from the earliest stages of pre-permit and pre-construction, to appealing permitting actions and defending permits or projects against third-party challenges. Our lawyers are skilled in working with technical consultants, as well as the full range of internal and external project stakeholders—including permitting authorities, tribes, and citizen groups—to facilitate successful outcomes for our clients.
