Environmental Law

Don’t let your project stall. Our attorneys can help you understand and comply with environmental law.

At Cacace, Tusch & Santagata in Stamford, CT, our attorneys have over thirty years experience handling real estate, zoning and land use cases. Frequently, these cases involve environmental matters related to waterfront development, wetlands and the related approval process. Our lawyers can readily identify environmental law issues affecting development projects, as well as the approvals that will be required before the projects can break ground.

Our firm is well-versed in handling waterfront development, development on property requiring remediation, and navigating environmental law and environmental regulations involving underground storage tanks. We also support environmental due diligence investigations, DEEP (Department of Energy and Environmental Protection) applications, and local wetlands and coastal site plan applications.
