These are complicated processes.
From local zoning boards and planning commissions to state and federal agencies, there are many steps in getting a project off the ground and a host of regulations to cope with. At Willoughby & Hoefer, we have navigated these laws numerous times for individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies.
Our attorneys have helped clients with matters including zoning and land use, waste management, underground storage tanks, air emissions, wastewater, and stormwater. Our law firm has experience with statutes such as the South Carolina Pollution Control Act, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, CERCLA (Superfund), and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. We have represented landowners, developers, manufacturers, and other businesses before a number of bodies, including the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, S.C. Department of Natural Resources, and S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control.
Willoughby & Hoefer’s role does not necessarily end when the project is completed. We also counsel clients on continuing environmental compliance and licensing issues. Our lawyers can help with self-audits and ensure that internal protocols keep up with any changes in the law. Should issues arise, our lawyers also can assist with challenges such as environmental cleanup and spill response.
And if environmental issues should bring you into a courtroom, we have the litigation experience to represent you effectively.
