Mr. Fogel's Clients include a wide variety of businesses, institutions, municipalities, individuals, and citizen groups engaged in land use development, real estate transactions, and permit and enforcement proceedings involving compliance with federal, state, and local environmental and land use regulations.

A major portion of Mr. Fogel's practice involves working with clients and their consultants to guide proposals for new or modified projects through all levels of environmental impact review and permitting including industrial and commercial facilities; energy and infrastructure projects; and other land uses and developments that require approvals for waste-site remediation, site review planning, waste discharges, air emissions, and resolution of liability disputes.

Mr. Fogel has extensive experience with projects that require permits and licenses for activities in and near inland and coastal wetlands and other protected resource areas. He also regularly manages cases involving administrative appeals, resolution of enforcement notices, and civil disputes involving litigation and mediation.

Prior to joining the firm in 1991, Mr. Fogel worked for six years as a Deputy General Counsel and Regional Director with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection. Before that, he served as Counsel to the District of Columbia City Council's Committee on Transportation and Environmental Affairs, and as counsel to the Chairman of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
