About Charlotte

Charlotte A. Biblow brings a breadth of knowledge to environmental, land use, municipal, and commercial litigation matters few environmental lawyers can match. Her scientific background and legal acumen benefit corporations and individuals in litigation and in business transactions involving environmental due diligence, audits, and environmental regulations. Additionally, she advises clients on environmental permitting, regulatory compliance and investigation and the remediation of environmentally impacted properties, such as brownfield sites, Superfund sites, and petroleum contamination sites.

Charlotte writes a bimonthly column for the New York Law Journal on New York State environmental regulations. She also is a frequent contributor to the firm’s Long Island Land Use & Zoning blog.

Charlotte has published several articles and has made presentations on a variety of topics, including brownfield remediation, environmental law, SEQRA, the impact of environmental law on real estate transfers, land use issues, and indoor air pollution.
