We represent applicants in the entire range of the environmental permitting process, from the initial project planning stages (scoping regulatory and permitting requirements across all media and disciplines) to pre-application counseling and application development.

As projects proceed, we help clients negotiate reasonable settlements with permitting agencies during the administrative review process. We proactively focus on strengthening permit applications and bolstering the administrative record to help safeguard project permits against potential challenges, including contested case proceedings, administrative and judicial appeals, and pushback from organizations and communities that seek to slow or derail the permit process.

Bracewell is a recognized leader in this space. As one client tells Chambers USA (2021), “We couldn’t ask for better representation; they are always helpful, timely and accurate.”
