Stoel Rives is one of the few US law firms in which environmental law is a core — not ancillary — area of practice. Ranked by Chambers USA, U.S. News—Best Lawyers®, and Law360 as among the largest, top-performing practices of its kind, our more than 60 environmental attorneys, paralegals, and compliance analysts draw on their prior agency experience, scientific and technical acumen, and broad-ranging industry knowledge to deliver sophisticated, solution-driven legal counsel. 

We deliver effective representation on the full spectrum of environmental and related issues, including regulatory compliance, permitting, legislative affairs and policy development, litigation, and alternative-dispute resolution. Over the years, we have built strong, professional relationships with federal, state, and local agency officials and numerous industry associations. Our firsthand knowledge of industry needs and government priorities enables us to provide coordinated, timely solutions that bridge the gaps between competing interests.

When disputes arise, our experienced environmental litigators bring an unparalleled level of focus and experience to a broad range of courtroom proceedings and agency hearings. We get to work quickly and efficiently, helping clients assess the situation and the facts of the matter, identify common ground with environmental and law-enforcement agencies, and pursue an effective dispute-resolution strategy.

Perhaps most important, we understand that clients seek more than just regulatory knowledge. Business and organizations expect attorneys with agency relationships, industry experience, and a high level of judgment. Whether working with in-house environmental and legal professionals, negotiating the halls of government, or providing strong advocacy in courtrooms and boardrooms, we remain focused on our clients’ business goals.
