Green Building and Sustainable Design
Schwabe, Williamson & Wyatt's Green Building practice brings together attorneys from various disciplines to assist clients in the growing and evolving areas of sustainability, green building – particularly with respect to LEED and other green certification provisions in contracts, green leasing, and project finance.
Green building is the future of the construction industry and our attorneys are at the forefront of the legal and regulatory issues associated with green building. As green building and sustainable design become common place in site development, architects, engineers, contractors, and owners will face new legal obligations, regulations, and potential liabilities. Our goal is to provide innovative legal support to our clients faced with these ever-evolving green building issues.
