Resources, Energy and Environment

When one of the world’s largest mining firms wanted to open Michigan’s first underground metallic mine in 60 years, it turned to Warner Norcross & Judd for legal representation and expert navigation of a complex regulatory landscape. Michigan cities hire Warner when seeking financial incentives for brownfield redevelopment projects, and our attorneys help energy utilities complete precedent-setting projects.  Some of the world’s largest chemical and pharmaceutical companies trust our advice, and Warner’s record of success has made us the firm of choice for companies large and small, municipalities and policymakers. Our resources, energy and environmental law group is one of the largest practices of its kind in the Midwest, and Warner is the only law firm in Michigan to bring those practices together to provide better and more comprehensive service.

Our attorneys handle a wide range of issues – from everyday matters such as permitting and compliance to major development and construction projects — involving manufacturers, power plants, wind farms, mining, oil and gas exploration, agri-business and other regulated enterprises. Because this is a full-service law firm, we also assist clients with related matters, such as the purchase and sale of property, immigration and labor issues, enforcement actions, mediation and litigation. We assist with any issue arising from state or federal environmental regulations.

Warner has more than twenty attorneys dedicated to resources, energy and environmental law, and our attorneys are leaders in their field. We have more environmental attorneys listed in The Best Lawyers in America than any other law firm in Michigan, and our partners have chaired: The American Bar Association’s Section of Environment, Energy and Resource; the Environmental Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan; and the Michigan Brownfield Association.

Understanding and complying with the growing web of environmental regulations can be burdensome. Warner will lighten that load. Our team of highly skilled, experienced attorneys will handle the legal and regulatory issues so you can focus on your top priority: operating a successful business or municipality.
