Helping our clients navigate the human side of the permitting process

PermittingPartners is a specialty practice established to help our clients and their partners reach their goal of obtaining approval for project start-up.

Using our stakeholder mapping process, PermittingPartners helps clients successfully navigate the "human side" of site identification and the permitting process. Our success is rooted in the ability to connect, empathize and engage with a wide variety of stakeholders on behalf of our clients; to understand the unique character of a community; and to address the concerns of its citizens in a thoughtful, specific and expedient manner.

Our clients find PermittingPartners' unique, community-focused approach lays a strong foundation for ongoing positive relations with their facilities' neighbors. We are able to reduce misinformation, expedite project approval and help hold down development costs. Our clients are able to develop and begin operations more quickly, and with greater success and stronger community support than companies that focus solely on the legal aspects of the permitting process. The old saying applies – "time is money."

Our commitment is driven by passion

PermittingPartners pledges to hold ourselves to the highest professional standards. While our range of permitting experience crosses numerous industries and our approach can be applied to any strategic economic development project, PermittingPartners’ passion is in our commitment to:

  • U.S. energy independence
  • Environmentally sound energy development
  • Fair and open communication with neighbors

To achieve energy independence, literally thousands of small, local generation points (such as wind, solar, biomass, hydro, co-generation facilities) must be developed to meet domestic energy demand within the constraints of the U.S. energy transmission system. While these smaller, localized generation points will not replace larger power generation sources, they will supplement them, allowing communities to utilize the sustainable energy resources in their own backyards.

We believe there can be a balance between neighbors and developers, development and sound environmental practices, and demand for resources and local community independence.
