If you have a company that works with toxins or chemicals, you may need to consider working with an environmental law attorney to prevent yourself from violating California’s laws. You may not be clear on all of the different ways that your business could be polluting or at risk of violating environmental laws, which is why it’s a good idea to have someone help you assess the risk early on.
When you work with an environmental law attorney, you can get help with:
- Obtaining licenses and permits for disposing of substances such as hazardous chemicals
- Resolving compliance issues that involve the United State Environmental Protection Agency
- Insurance coverage issues for losses due to pollution
- Land and zoning issues
- New construction environmental review reports and knowing what you need for the state or federal government to approve your construction
Many kinds of businesses can encounter environmental risks when completing transactions or running operations. Knowing how to identify those risks and to assess how serious they are can give you the opportunity to address them. You can then find ways to prevent negative repercussions for your company as a result.
