Jeffrey M. Sanders PLLC is a boutique litigation firm located in the historical Old Seminary Square District of Covington, Kentucky. Our practice outgrew our former space in Fort Thomas, Kentucky. Our new address is 1009 Russell Street, Covington, Kentucky 41011. Our telephone number is 859-781-4556. We welcome new clients to our practice. We pride ourselves on finding practical solutions to complex disputes.
We focus our professional energy and efforts on complex litigation that usually involves environmental or toxic tort issues, as well as property and natural resource law. We use a rapid response, team approach in our cases that maximizes our talents, skills, and resources so we can aggressively advocate our clients’ objectives and achieve their long-term strategic goals in a cost and time-efficient manner.
We work with a diverse group of clients and that experience allows us to spot the potential issues before they become a problem. Indeed, one of our law firm’s greatest assets is the ability to identify potential environmental issues before they become legal problems. Prudent and appropriate environmental counseling and advice are fundamental part of our commitment to our clients.
Our in-depth experience in all major federal and state environmental regulatory programs allows us to cut to the chase, whether we are dealing with the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, or other major regulatory programs.
Our clients are not always able to avoid environmental liabilities in today’s complex regulatory environment. Sometimes, a client will be a target of a federal or state environmental enforcement action. At such times, it is comforting to know that when necessary we will vigorously and aggressively defend our clients and advocate their best interests in negotiations, administrative proceedings and litigation.
On such occasions, our past experience in prosecuting cases for the government is a huge advantage to us and our clients. In the enforcement arena, we are effective spokesmen for our clients, aggressively negotiating the lowest possible civil penalties, developing creative solutions to enforcement actions, including innovative and effective supplemental environmental projects (SEPs). We are able to design common sense long-term practical solutions and cost-effective legal strategies to bring clients into compliance. We want our clients to be in compliance with the law. It just makes good sound financial sense for our clients.
We have substantial experience with the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990, which form the regulatory framework for air emissions. In this complex regulatory program, we have represented a wide spectrum of clients, ranging from a large utility with multiple coal-fired electric generating plants to large chemical manufacturing plants to smaller industrial manufacturing clients. We continually monitor and understand the almost constant changes to this complex regulatory program. We can provide our clients with comprehensive Title V permitting services. We also provide our clients with sound advice based on our experience and knowledge base so that they can plan and maintain compliance with applicable air emission regulations.
We have substantial experience in state and federal permitting programs. Whether a client must obtain a construction or operation permit for a RCRA Subtitle D landfill, RCRA Part A or B permit, air permit, NPDES permit, KPDES permit, or a storm-water runoff permit, we successfully obtain the necessary permits for our clients, on time and on budget. We provide all legal assistance needed to ensure that our clients maintain compliance with their regulatory permits.
We are always happy to provide training to our clients’ employees and managers on a wide variety of environmental, health and safety topics. We will gladly come to your shop to provide such training. We can also provide assistance in writing company policies, procedures, and safety handbooks.
We work closely with a large number of other outside law firms representing lenders, borrowers, real estate developers, corporations, and insurance companies on a variety of environmental law issues. The legal issues range from regulatory compliance, risk evaluation, risk avoidance, and enforcement issues. We are able to communicate quickly in a timely and cost-efficient manner to find solutions to environmental problems.
Over the years, we have slowly developed a network of extremely competent environmental engineering consultants and experts. We also are able to monitor costs associated with environmental remediation, including engineering costs. We work to make sure projects are delivered on time and on budget.
We are fully committed to utilizing the most advanced technological resources and the power of the Internet to reduce the expense of litigation and to communicate better, faster, and more cost-effectively with our clients and with others, including the public and interested stakeholders. At the same time, we understand that technology is only a tool of the trade, and not a substitute for talent, desire, experience, and passion.
No one ever works harder for their clients than we do. Our passion, intelligence, and drive explain why we can remain independent and financially successful in this highly complex area of the law. We are the best at what we do because we work harder, longer, and better than the environmental attorneys in the large law firms.
