Waller attorneys partner with our clients' environmental, health and safety, and operations personnel to decipher environmental regulations regarding waste, air and water standards, and how they impact businesses.

Clients choose Waller's environmental team for assistance with complex permitting, expansion, compliance or other environmental challenges because of our extensive experience and track record of results.

Hazardous Waste and Remediation

Our Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) practice focuses on counseling hazardous waste generators and treatment facilities on issues concerning compliance with RCRA's tangled regulatory scheme. Our advice has helped clients design or re-engineer industrial processes to avoid materials being regulated as solid or hazardous waste. In other cases, our defense enforcement proceedings have saved clients from huge penalties. We also represent non-hazardous waste landfills in permitting, site development, litigation and compliance issues across the state.

Clean Air Act

Waller's Clean Air Act practice is one of the leading practices in the region. 

Working closely with clients to achieve their goals, our attorneys:

Water Law

Waller's environmental attorneys advise clients with respect to the Safe Drinking Water Act and Tennessee's Water Quality Control Act, including the permitting and enforcement programs associated with these Acts.

We assist clients by:

Environmental Management Systems (EMS)

Waller attorneys work with clients to develop and implement EMS and related organizational policies and organizational structures, including obtaining ISO 14000 certifications. We guide clients in self-audits and disclosures under various state audit privilege laws or under EPA's self-disclosure policies.

Brownfield Redevelopment

Waller attorneys helped develop Tennessee's original voluntary cleanup program and remain leading practitioners assisting real estate developers, investors, lenders and landowners in the redevelopment of contaminated sites. Our attorneys have facilitated projects across Tennessee and in a dozen other states. Highlights include projects associated with Nashville's pro sports venues, hotel redevelopment in Chattanooga, and numerous residential and office developments across the state.
