Project Permitting & Development

From major building projects to innovative green energy projects, A&K’s environmental team knows how to secure timely and workable permits. Our environmental permitting experience includes:

  • We routinely represent National Grid in environmental permitting matters in New England. We have helped Grid obtain essential federal and state permits for major, time-sensitive energy projects, including a 32-mile transmission line in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.
  • Texas-based Excelerate Energy retains A&K to handle environmental permitting and compliance for its liquid natural gas (LNG) port in Massachusetts – one of only twelve in the United States. We helped Excelerate obtain over 20 federal, state and local permits and regularly advise it on how to most efficiently comply with federal and state requirements.
  • We helped the Massachusetts Gaming Commission draft findings under the Massachusetts Environmental Policy Act (MEPA) for three newly-developed Massachusetts casinos. The findings describe a comprehensive package of mitigation measures for each casino, ensuring that promises made by casino applicants to state regulators and the public are met throughout the development process.
