Please keep in mind that merely contacting Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough LLP will not establish an attorney-client relationship. Nelson Mullins cannot represent you until the firm knows there would not be a conflict of interest, and the firm determines that it is otherwise able to accept the engagement. Accordingly, please do not send Nelson Mullins any information or documents until a formal attorney-client relationship has been established through an interview with an attorney and authorized in the form of an engagement letter from Nelson Mullins. Any information or documents sent prior to your receipt of an engagement letter cannot be treated as confidences, secrets or protected information of any nature. Clicking "Submit" acknowledges that you understand and agree with this notice.
Unless you live under a rock, you have likely heard the news and political debates over Clean Water Act (CWA) jurisdiction. You have likely heard about the Obama administration’s attempt to redefine “navigable waters” in a rule that greatly extended the reach of CWA jurisdiction—known as the WOTUS rule—and that has been the subject of much litigation. Under the Trump administration, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is repealing that rule.
