From companies developing solar energy systems to a small business selling all-natural, organic foods, these industries collide with legislation and court precedents, and companies must be aware of the regulations impacting their businesses. Visitors to the National Law Review will come across industry news, agency news, and local legislation as well as litigation as it relates to the areas of energy and environmental law.
