Environmental and Natural Resources Law

At Haglund Kelley our lawyers deftly navigate the complex web of environmental and natural resources laws to deliver high caliber counseling, negotiation and litigation services that address our clients’ legal concerns.

Our environmental and natural resources lawyers understand the scientific, business, legal and social challenges associated with the environmental and natural resources in the Pacific Northwest. Their knowledge of local, state and federal laws and deep background in environmental and natural resources sciences enable them to create practical solutions that balance environmental, economic and social interests. As a result, they have built a proven record in a variety of areas. This includes resolving disputes involving the spotted owl, salmon and other endangered species; handling negotiations and litigation involving the Columbia River Gorge National Scenic Area; and counseling clients on government contracts and a host of public and private lands issues.

Our lawyers are also among the most experienced in the country regarding renewable natural resources issues on federal and state lands.  They have successfully litigated numerous questions of regional and national significance related to endangered species, the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Federal Land Management Act (FLPMA), and the National Forest Management Act (NFMA). Our clients across the Northwest rely on our team to secure renewable natural resources from public lands and to defend important forest health and restoration projects.
