From upstream to downstream and landowner or operator, Jones Walker offers guidance through the natural resources regulatory framework to ensure a timely and efficient resumption of operations or disaster-related repair and restoration. In the past, agencies such as the Department of Environmental Quality, the Department of Natural Resources, the Louisiana State Mineral Board, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the United States Coast Guard, and others issued numerous emergency orders and pronouncements that affected natural resources, regulatory compliance matters, the treatment and disposal of hurricane-related waste and debris, and related issues. Our attorneys tracked these pronouncements and proclamations of Louisiana's natural resources agencies, and were able to provide important advice to clients regarding these requirements.

Our attorneys can also assist with other fishery- and ocean resource-related issues. We are uniquely qualified to navigate fishermen and fishing communities through ongoing legislative and federal financial compensation initiatives.
