Environmental Law

Skillful Representation for Environmental Law Matters Throughout Maryland, Delaware and Beyond

Failure to consider, address, or remediate environmental issues can bring a project to a costly standstill or expose property owners and developers to significant liability for running afoul of complex and multi-layered regulations. At McAllister, DeTar, Showalter & Walker (MDSW), our Maryland environmental law attorneys have significant experience helping clients navigate the challenges presented by environmental issues, whether in the earliest stages of a proposed transaction or when facing liability for alleged violations of state or federal environmental laws and regulations.

We know that property owners, developers, and others can often overlook or easily run afoul of environmental issues simply because there are so many overlapping regulatory regimes at play. We educate and advise our clients on all the potential issues which could impact their business or goals.

MSDW’s environmental lawyers help clients integrate environmental concerns early in the planning process when business or real estate transactions raise potential issues, conducting extensive due diligence and assisting clients with obtaining necessary approvals and permits. We help craft strategies that can minimize the potential for future liability and develop protocols and checklists designed to keep ongoing operations in compliance with all applicable laws.

When issues do arise, we defend clients charged with environmental violations by states and the federal government.
