Specializing in Coastal Protection & Development
The southeastern coastal region has seen increasing levels of development for residential, commercial and governmental use. These rapid changes can have a harsh impact on Georgia’s, South Carolina’s and Alabama’s coastlines and their natural resources. All too often these developments are improperly planned, constructed and managed. Even more frequently, these developments are undertaken with no meaningful thought given to consideration of long-term effect, climate change, competing land use requirements and sustainability.
At , our coastal lawyers provide advice to clients seeking to properly develop land within a state’s coastal zone in an environmentally beneficial and sustainable manner. Since 1993, we have helped individuals, municipalities, government agencies and businesses obtain necessary development permits, create and implement pollution prevention and control measures, and have assisted with many other environmental law issues affecting coastal development. We have assisted clients who desire to demonstrate that development activities and environmental protection need not and should not be mutually exclusive.
