Our Service Difference
The Goulston & Storrs Environmental Law Group offers to clients an extraordinary service value, combining nationwide experience in a broad range of environmental issues with an efficient approach to practice.
The firm has a cultural dedication to superior client service, focusing on responsiveness, efficiency, and most importantly solutions and results. Because of our low leverage service model, we handle matters with fewer legal staff than more traditional firms while remaining more accessible to our clients and providing partner level attention to all assignments.
Our lawyers also focus on the business context of every matter, making special efforts to understand the critically relevant aspects of each client’s business and industry. As part of this focus, we help our clients quantify and manage environmental business risks. With this approach, we translate engineering, legalese and techno-speak into practical guidance, explaining environmental risks, quantifying them, and containing them, when possible, through due diligence, regulatory planning , risk-shifting, risk-sharing and insurance.
Our team offers a rare, perhaps unique, combination of nationwide environmental insurance expertise, contacts with state and federal regulators who have worked with us for years, and knowledge of the relevant science, engineering and current regulatory developments. In fact, one of our environmental lawyers is a certified environmental engineer and several lawyers in the firm have experience working in government.
We also have a well-established network of reliable local counsel, engineers, insurance experts and government contacts to help us solve thorny environmental problems.
The reputation of our team and its professional network is so well established that we frequently work with other law firms to perform the environmental due diligence analysis and counseling in their transactions, particularly large acquisitions and dispositions that require efficient and effective due diligence in multiple jurisdictions.
We understand and appreciate that a client is entrusting the future of their business to us, and we take that seriously. That is why the very structure of our Environmental Group is client-focused, providing incentives to work collaboratively and share expertise in order to support our clients to the fullest.
