Environmental Regulation & Litigation


Our attorneys have the education and experience necessary to successfully navigate environmental regulations for manufacturing and service industry clients. Whether permit applications, remediation determinations, or compliance inspections, our attorneys have the ability and understanding to minimize the difficulties of complying with the voluminous state and federal environmental regulations. Relationships with regulatory agents in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas, established over the last two decades, have given us a unique understanding of agency policy and procedure that is most helpful to our clients.

On those occasions when regulatory compliance is not the complete solution to environmental problems, our highly experienced litigation attorneys are available for defense.  Lee, Futrell & Perles has successfully defended clients in cases addressing releases of airborne carcinogens, wetland environmental damage from 3-D seismic operations, oil/chemical spill remediation, and other discharge and emission-related events.

Although we are located in New Orleans, our practice is regional in scope, with lawyers licensed in Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas, and Georgia. Martindale-Hubbell's highest peer-review rating—AV®—has been conferred on the firm. Contact Us
