A Tradition of Excellence Delivering Modern Solutions
Anderson & Kreiger has long been recognized as a leader in environmental law. We were one of the first law firms in Massachusetts to focus on environmental law, and over the last three decades have become one of the largest and most experienced environmental legal teams in New England. No matter what the environmental problem or project stage, we have the knowledge and background to advise you efficiently, pragmatically, and effectively.

We identify permitting hurdles, assess liability and other legal risks, and offer sophisticated analysis and practical solutions to facilitate corporate and real estate transactions. We help ensure that projects start off on the right foot.
Environmental Impact Review (MEPA and NEPA) Click here to learn more.
Complex projects, and even simpler ones, often trigger review under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Unless carefully coordinated with other permitting, these environmental reviews can cause long project delays. We focus on early planning with consultants, regulators, and other stakeholders to develop a comprehensive strategy to sequence environmental reviews and other permitting efficiently.
