Environmental


Environmental law has changed over the last decades, and we have evolved along with it.

FABREGA, MOLINO & MULINA’s Environmental Practice assists our clients with issues under the environmental laws that affect their businesses.

We help clients navigate routine and complex environmental issues to help them overcome difficult (often political) challenges so they can focus on their goals with greater clarity and confidence.

Our clients benefit from our decades of practice in the environmental area.  FMM’s environmental lawyers have handled matters involving issues under national and international regulations.

We advise clients on traditional environmental regulatory matters, and we assist in developing business strategies that benefit from environmental opportunities or address regulatory challenges.
