Best Bets: Clean Tech
The California Lawyer magazine article, "Best Bets: Clean Tech," discusses the progress several law firms have made in developing practices that address climate change. In the article, Nossaman Partner Robert Thornton is quoted as saying, "Global climate change is clearly the issue of the day, and it's probably going to be the issue of the decade." The 10 attorney Climate Change Practice Group at Nossaman is advising clients including local governments and real estate developers on how to address climate change issues in their Environmental Impact Reports (EIRs). Working for the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), the group is helping the organization establish a new alternative set of certified green building standards. The new standards will be launched later this year and will be known as the National Green Building Standard.
