Environmental matters affect companies on a daily basis. They touch business operations from the day-to-day to the sizeable M&A. No matter where or how an environmental issue appears, organizations need lawyers who understand the entire picture and who can anticipate what will come next. With offices located across the U.S. and in Canada, Dickinson Wright's environmental team advises on environmental issues on local, national, and international levels. We regularly work on transactional matters, site remediation, emergency response and crisis management, energy and mining matters, wetlands and water law issues, and litigate disputes when they arise.


Our environmental team provides comprehensive services to clients in numerous sectors, including:


  • National & International Manufacturers

  •  Oil Refineries
  •  Pipeline Owners
  •  Property Owners
  •  Consumer Products
  • Conventional, Renewable, & Alternative Energy 

  • Trade Associations
  • Waste Management Facilities

  •  Municipalities


Most environmental matters involve other business interests as well. As a full-service law firm, our environmental lawyers regularly work with their colleagues in related practices such as finance, mergers and acquisitions, insurance, construction, and real estate, to ensure that we address and assuage every potential point of concern that may emerge.


Our Team


Our team is made up of lawyers that have diverse backgrounds in environmental engineering, chemistry, urban planning, business, and communications. This variable and expansive mix of experience allows us to see subtle and often remarkable insights into the technical and business aspects of our clients’ projects.

Our lawyers also remain at the forefront of industry developments through memberships in organizations like such as the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL) and the College of Community Association Lawyers (CCAL).
