For more than 30 years, Holland & Hart has been assisting clients in navigating the complex and often costly regulatory environment under the Endangered Species Act ("ESA"), Migratory Bird Treaty Act ("MBTA"), and Bald & Golden Eagle Protection Act ("BGEPA"). Our clients benefit from the insights and relationships that our attorneys have developed working for and with federal and state agencies responsible for endangered species and other wildlife-related matters, including the Department of the Interior and its U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Bureau of Land Management, and Bureau of Reclamation; NOAA Fisheries; the Department of State; the Department of Justice; the Environmental Protection Agency; and numerous state and local agencies. Many of our attorneys have been instrumental in developing major regulatory and statutory changes, both on a national level as well as in several states in the Mountain West Region.
Our attorneys maintain deep relationships with federal and state legislative and agency decisionmakers. Our work with commercial interests, government entities, and special interest organizations gives our attorneys a deep understanding and insight into the perspective of all of the major players in this arena as well as a view of the issues from every angle. The depth of our experience benefits our clients by enabling us to present an array of solutions to unique problems.
