Lawyers for a Changing Environment
Marten has built a national reputation as a leader in environmental and energy law. Our team of lawyers includes recognized authorities in alternative energy, climate change, air quality, hazardous and solid waste, water resources and water quality, fisheries, environmental review and permitting, and a host of other issues that our business and public clients confront every day. Unlike general practice firms, we focus on one practice area, so we can be the best at it in the country. This has allowed our firm to represent clients in some of the most important energy and environmental matters nationally, including:
- Both the Deep Water Horizon and Exxon Valdez oil spill cleanups and litigation
- Permitting the first clean coal plant designed to capture 90% of its emissions and sequester captured carbon dioxide into the ground
- Resolving claims in some of the largest environmental bankruptcy proceedings in history
- Representing controversial public and private development projects, including airports, mines, solar and wind developments;
- Initiating and defending rate challenges for major power consumers
To ensure that we stay at the forefront of our field, every lawyer in the firm writes for our nationally recognized newsletter, Marten Law News, which reaches over 30,000 subscribers in all 50 states and more than 20 countries. Our attorneys have authored hundreds articles for LexisNexis, West, the ABA, and numerous other publishers, including the LexisNexis Global Climate Change Series.
Our clients recognize that the best expertise may not be in the biggest firm, but in the firm with the greatest experience and skill in the area they need help most. For that reason, we have the privilege of representing some of the largest companies in America, local governments across the country, and innovative emerging companies. We have been chosen to represent numerous public sector clients, particularly in regulatory and development matters--where we bring projects to completion.
We strive to deliver successful outcomes, not billable hours. We know our clients’ businesses and work as partners to meet their objectives, overcome their legal obstacles, and maximize their opportunities.
We attract and retain lawyers by offering them the opportunity to work on some of the most challenging projects and cases in our field. We expect our lawyers to be at the leading edge of environmental and energy law. A team-oriented work environment enables us to deliver the best advice and product to our clients at a reasonable cost.
