Of Counsel
 

Andrew B. Robins uses his wide range of environmental law experience to counsel clients in regulatory compliance, cost recovery litigation, redevelopment, brownfields, transaction negotiation and risk analysis. His broad background includes environmental and brownfield redevelopment matters involving solid and hazardous waste regulations, the LSRP program, ISRA/ECRA, CAFRA, voluntary cleanups, medical waste regulations, wetlands regulations, Clean Water Act, Clean Air Act, underground storage tanks (USTs), stream encroachment (flood plain) regulations, waterfront development, Meadowlands, Highlands, Pinelands and CERCLA (Superfund) as well as land use approval matters and related transactions and litigation.

Mr. Robins negotiates transaction agreements and identifies and works to minimize risks associated with environmental matters. He obtains necessary approvals and permits, defends against governmental and citizen group enforcement actions, pursues cost recovery in litigation and challenges improper governmental actions and regulations.

As a member of a number of the Department of Environmental Protection’s stakeholder groups, Mr. Robins has been actively involved in the crafting and implementation of the new programs and initiatives, including the NJDEP’s Site Remediation, Land Use, Solid and Hazardous Waste and Enforcement Programs. He was involved in the LSRP program and the SRRA legislation from the earliest initial meeting and remains active on the Site Remediation Program’s Steering Committee and other stakeholder committees. He is often invited to speak and write on a variety of environmental law topics, such as cost recovery, “brownfields” redevelopment, ISRA/ECRA, voluntary cleanups, underground storage tanks, medical waste regulation, wetlands regulation, permit acquisition and air pollution.
