Bookmark and Share

Sustainability Law BookletBusinesses and individuals, as well as federal, state and local governments, every day face a myriad of issues that arise under the rubric of sustainability and climate change. The Pacific Northwest, in particular, is playing a key role in the development of policies that encourage sustainability and reduce climate impacts.

As a leading Pacific Northwest law firm, Lane Powell is well-versed in the rapidly evolving legal and regulatory environment that is sustainability and climate change. Indeed, our lawyers also participate in many of the business and government task forces that are shaping those future laws and regulations. In recognition of the scope of the issues, Lane Powell formed its Sustainability and Climate Change team from the many disciplines involved – construction, corporate, environmental, land use, real estate, renewable energy and tax – to provide our clients with up-to-date advice on the state of the law and what may be coming in the near future.
