Environmental Strategies

Air Quality Bracewell’s air quality team works with business leaders, regulators, and federal and state policymakers on virtually every aspect of air quality, including permitting, compliance management, regulatory initiatives, public policy advocacy, and enforcement. We represent and counsel companies nationwide in key sectors of the economy such as oil and gas, refining, cement, construction, power, chemicals, manufacturing, mining, and technology. Recognized by Chambers USA for its exceptional knowledge and experience, our air quality team includes lawyers with senior-level experience in government regulatory and enforcement positions and in private practice. Our strong foundation in Texas and Washington, D.C. ensures that clients benefit from a broad perspective on the most pressing air issues of the day. Environmental Litigation When litigation becomes likely or imminent, we assemble a team with all the elements needed to vigorously represent our clients’ interests. Our litigation team draws on decades of experience in the courtroom as well as intimate familiarity with the regulatory and technical details on which these cases often turn. Braced by our communications specialists, we provide seamless advocacy inside and outside the courtroom. Transaction Diligence and Support Environmental risk and liability can become major concerns when assets or companies are bought or sold, or when clients seek or offer financing. We approach transactions not only with deep technical knowledge of the subject at hand, but also as experienced transactional lawyers who are familiar with the deal process, the negotiation of integrated or stand-alone environmental terms, and creative approaches to controlling risk. We advise on domestic and international transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, lending/financing, and real estate ventures. We apply a thorough understanding of the business – be it in energy, chemicals, refining, heavy manufacturing, or technology – to provide practical, up-to-date insight and advice. Policy Advocacy and Media Strategy Working with colleagues in Bracewell’s Policy Resolution Group, we help corporate leaders shape the impact of laws and policies by providing focused advocacy before federal departments and agencies, in Congress, and in new and traditional media. Our strategic communications specialists have trusted relationships with national, regional and sector-specific outlets in print, radio, television, and online media. This enables us to ensure clients present a unified, effective message to build support within the public, legislative, and regulatory arenas.
