Environnement

Our environmental practice is an intrinsic part of the firm’s corporate department where lawyers advise on mergers and acquisitions, securities offerings, financings and other corporate matters. Debevoise lawyers actively represent private equity firms, industrial companies and other businesses in a wide range of transactions. We have also recently represented industry leaders, including those in the mining, paper and energy sectors, in domestic and international transactions.

Our practice brings together lawyers who focus on environmental law and have significant experience with corporate matters. Chambers USA (2014) praises department head Stuart Hammer for his “efficient approach to advising clients.” PLC Cross-border Environment Handbook 2011/12 also recognizes Mr. Hammer as a leading practitioner in environmental law.

Debevoise is well-known for work in complex, cross-border transactions, which demand substantial coordination and oversight, ensuring successful outcomes for our clients. We counsel clients on how to effectively mitigate environmental risks and manage environmental liabilities associated with their transactions.  Our close relationships with the major international environmental consulting firms assist in providing comprehensive and efficient due diligence. 

We advise clients on issues associated with climate change, including in connection with renewable and traditional energy projects, laws regulating greenhouse gas emissions and disclosure matters.

Our environmental group collaborates with our litigators. Debevoise has represented corporations in actions brought by the U.S. government and private parties under CERCLA (Superfund) and other environmental laws. We advise clients as to their most effective choices in addressing environmental issues and, when appropriate, we work with regulatory authorities to resolve matters.
