The attorneys at Kalman & Associates are recognized leaders in their field.

We advise our clients on how best to evaluate and manage environmental risks associated with mergers, acquisitions, and real estate transactions by conducting environmental due diligence, preparing and negotiating environmental provisions in transactional documents, and providing advice to lenders, borrowers, sellers, and potential purchasers of contaminated sites. Our attorneys are also proficient at assembling top industry experts and consultants to assist clients with their regulatory and legislative challenges, litigation, and transactional work throughout the northeastern United States.

Our attorneys have extensive experience with permitting and compliance issues associated with the management of hazardous substances under federal programs, including the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), and similar state counterpart laws and we are well-versed in the areas of contaminated site remediation and redevelopment under federal and state Brownfields programs. Our practice includes the prosecution and defense of environmental cost-recovery actions, managing technical consultants in site investigations and remedial actions, negotiations with regulatory agencies, joint defense efforts among private parties, and related litigation in federal and state courts.

Kalman & Associates counsels clients in a broad range of industries, including petrochemical, oil and gas, energy, manufacturing, banking, insurance, retail and waste disposal industries. We understand the impact that federal and state environmental regulation has on our clients’ operations and have consistently found innovative and cost-effective solutions to the challenging regulatory issues they face. Over the years, our attorneys have had the privilege of representing some of the largest companies in the world and we continue to work as partners with our clients to meet their objectives, overcome legal obstacles, limit liability, and maximize opportunities.
