Sustainability Law

Attorneys in Gilchrist & Rutter’s Sustainability Practice Group help clients navigate the local, state and federal laws dealing with a project’s environmental impact. We clarify what is required to comply with applicable laws, and how to maximize investments in “green” technology, such as making low-cost operational adjustments and building improvements to reduce operating costs for tenants and landlords, increase the value of the assets, and attract and retain tenants willing to pay a premium for environmentally friendly/healthy locations. Building on our expertise in construction, leasing and asset management-related legal issues, we assist our clients in areas such as:

  • Incorporating green building considerations in design and construction.
  • Enhancing a project’s sustainability by minimizing its resource footprint.
  • Adopting energy efficient practices in the management and operation of assets.
  • Drafting leases to address landlords’ and tenants’ concerns about increasing a project’s energy efficiency and reducing its environmental footprint.
