A New Environmental and Public Space Law Practice

Amy Turner is thrilled to announce the launch of her new law practice, Turner Legal PLLC, focused on environmental and public space law.

After 7+ years of truly rewarding experience and training at Davis Polk & Wardwell LLP and Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP in New York, Amy is bringing her “big firm” legal skills to the New York City and New York State markets in a more agile and cost effective way. 

Amy will continue to practice environmental law in a variety of transactional and advisory contexts. She will also be expanding her practice to encompass issues relating to public space and urban design, as well as to provide general legal advice to small businesses and nonprofits. A more comprehensive list of Turner Legal PLLC’s services is available on the Practice Areas page, but generally speaking Amy will be advising on the following:

  • Environmental: federal, state and local environmental laws, regulations and permitting processes, including the SEQRA and CEQR environmental review processes; transactional services including due diligence and contract drafting and negotiation; sustainability, resiliency and smart growth.
     
  • Public Space: federal, state and local requirements applicable to parks, neighborhoods, BIDs and other publicly- and privately-owned public spaces; entity formation advice to advocacy groups, BIDs and others; advocacy and matters before a community board or other public body or official.
     
  • Nonprofits and Small Businesses: in addition to the environmental and public space advice described above, entity formation and governance; permitting; transactional support; general legal advice a la carte or on an ongoing “outside general counsel” basis.

Turner Legal PLLC’s clients will range from companies of all sizes needing environmental transactional support to small businesses, community groups, developers, nonprofits (including BIDs and parks conservancies) and individuals looking for an advisor and team member on a host of environmental and public space issues.
