M. Anne Peters advises businesses, municipalities, financial institutions and individuals in the environmental aspects of commercial, corporate and real estate transactions. Her clients include a wide range of entities, such as manufacturers, municipalities, petroleum marketers, non-profit social service organizations, schools, dry cleaners and a state bonding agency.
She has worked with clients to remediate and redevelop contaminated properties. Anne helps her clients identify and understand the environmental laws that apply to their businesses and bring their operations into compliance with those environmental laws. Anne’s work includes helping her clients identify clean-up and compliance obligations, quantify the risk associated with those obligations and manage that risk. She works closely with her clients and their consultants to seek creative, cost effective solutions to environmental problems.
Anne’s education in biology, geology and chemistry together with her work in the Geology Department at Brown University before law school have not only helped her understand and apply environmental laws and regulations but also help her speak the same language as consultants and engineers.
