Environmental Law & Litigation

Enforcement, Criminal Prosecutions

Sive, Paget & Riesel is uniquely qualified to defend environmental enforcement matters, particularly enforcement actions that threaten the health or viability of a company. A wealth of experience in enforcement proceedings served as the background for founding principal Dan Riesel’s book, Environmental Enforcement: Civil and Criminal, and our legal team includes many former federal and state environmental attorneys. We combine this knowledge and experience to effectively defend clients in any enforcement action brought by federal, state or local governments.

As criminal investigations and prosecution for environmental infractions have increased, Sive, Paget & Riesel has become increasingly active in defending the targets of criminal investigation and prosecutions. Our attorneys leverage their experience as federal and state prosecutors to provide thorough support for clients in all aspects of the case.
