Dieck Discusses Path to Environment Law in the Charleston Mercury
Charleston Environmental Member Elizabeth Dieck was featured in the Charleston Mercury on March 6. Dieck joined Moore & Van Allen in November of 2017. In the article, she describes how growing up in Charleston inspired her to practice environmental law. Dieck has established an environmental law practice with the firm to help clients navigate the complex web of environmental regulations and obtain permits. She also provides compliance counseling and the resolution or avoidance of environmental enforcement issues.
No day practicing environmental law is exactly like the next. One day she’s counseling a client about serious concerns regarding the storm water system in his subdivision and what can be done. The next day she’s negotiating with DHEC on a voluntary cleanup contract for a developer on a problematic piece of property.
“Protecting the environment is something I’m passionate about,” insists Mrs. Dieck. “It’s not about being anti-development or anti-growth. There are solutions that address many of our environmental concerns. It’s just that you have to be very direct and cognizant of what those issues are. These considerations have to be evaluated because they’re not going to go away.”
