We help clients assess, manage, and mitigate ecological impacts associated with products, projects, or environmental practices. We combine our expertise in ecology, toxicology, and risk assessment with a practical and common sense approach to develop solutions that are targeted, strategic, and effective.
Ecological risk assessment
We conduct ecological risk assessments to support a variety of regulatory and product stewardship needs. Clients turn to us for technically robust analyses, strategic thinking, and the very best communication—and this is what separates us from other firms. We use our deep understanding of ecological processes to develop appropriately scaled and targeted analyses and management options.

natural resource damage assessment
From building a technically sound basis for evaluating injury, causation, and baseline, to quantifying losses, scaling restoration, and assisting with cooperative assessments, we develop defensible strategies for all phases of the natural resource damage assessment process. Our multidisciplinary team of ecologists, hydrogeologists, resource economists, and regulatory experts is known for strategic insights, technical depth, and the ability to communicate effectively with trustees and other stakeholders.
