Land and Sea Use

Today, building requires more than simply obtaining a permit and swinging a hammer. Clients look to us for help with all of their development plans. We work with our clients and other professionals to perfect the project and then communicate those plans to decision makers at all levels of government.

Riparian Rights and Responsibilities

The current climate crisis calls for an immediate need to change our relationship with the ocean. We are on the front lines where the land meets the sea and where critical decisions are being made about how to use both in a time of rapid change.

Environmental Hazards

20th century industrialization has too often resulted in 21st century contamination. We work with companies trying to do the right thing. We also work with individuals facing harm when other companies don't live up to their obligations.

Workforce Development

Industries are struggling to attract and train teams that capture the benefits of new technology. To build a modern workforce, you need modern tools. Policies, training, contracts, and even legal defenses play a critical role in defining the culture of a future workforce. That is where we come in.

Maritime and Blue Economy

Rising sea levels, alternative energy, aquaculture, and increased shipping put new pressures on habitat and traditional uses of the ocean. You will find us where thought-leaders are talking about how we protect and better utilize the resources of our rivers, bays, and oceans.

Old ideas of globalization transferred jobs across borders. New globalization transfers ideas across borders. We help innovations flow from universities across the ocean into markets that can maximize their value.
