Environmental & Natural Resource Law in the Southwest
In New Mexico, environmental law is regulated by numerous state and federal agencies. The New Mexico Environmental Department (NMED) is the primary state agency responsible for protecting and preserving our natural resources. Its responsibilities include regulating air and water quality, hazardous waste management, and radiation control.
At the federal level, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has jurisdiction over environmental matters throughout the Southwest. Its responsibilities include enforcing federal environmental laws and regulations, conducting environmental research, and providing information about environmental issues.
At Domenici Law, our team has been involved in environmental law issues for decades. Our firm was founded by Pete Domenici, who has been in practice since 1986 and has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America and Super Lawyers for his competence and case results in Environmental Law.
He and his team have worked directly with state and federal agencies on behalf of clients, such as:
- The New Mexico Environmental Department
- The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
- The Bureau of Land Management
- The Forest Service
- The New Mexico Office of State Engineer
- The New Mexico State Land Office
- The New Mexico Energy Minerals and Natural Resources Department
These matters range from land use to water and air issues, including permitting and compliance matters. Our firm handles transactional and legal issues distinctive to our region, including matters related to ranchers, cattlemen, dairies, irrigation districts, rural clients, ditch associations, and others.
We are knowledgeable on the division of property, ranch division and succession, property easements, conservation easements, tax credits, grazing rights, grazing permits, establishing, buying, and selling water rights, mining and mineral rights, oil and gas, and other real estate and land use matters.
We have represented clients ranging from governmental entities, such as local villages and cities to private property owners and business owners.
If you are facing any type of legal issue related to the environment and natural resources, we urge you to take advantage of the broad industry experience we bring to the table.
