Ice Miller's Environmental Practice Group helps clients and their communities grow their futures - no matter how big or small.


Environmental law is a complex system of interrelated statutes, regulations, guidelines, administrative rulings and judicial decisions designed to protect public health and the environment while balancing society's interest in economic growth.
 


Most businesses and communities encounter environmental challenges at one time or another, and for some environmental issues are a daily concern. To protect and grow your business or community, you need environmental lawyers with a deep knowledge of our complex system of federal, state and local environmental laws and broad experience preventing and solving environmental issues.
