Firm Details

Manko, Gold, Katcher & Fox, LLP (MGKF) is an environmental, energy, safety, land use law and litigation firm. MGKF’s practice spans the full range of regulatory compliance, transactional and litigation services relating to its practice areas. The firm was founded in 1989 by a core group of attorneys whose experience is grounded in the emergence of the comprehensive environmental laws enacted in the 1970s and early 1980s. MGKF serves a client base ranging from small and medium-sized businesses to Fortune 100 companies. With offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Hawaii, the practice is based in the Mid-Atlantic region but assists clients with operations across the country.

Today’s firm consists of a seasoned group of partners complemented by a dedicated group of associates, technical consultants and paralegals proven to stay abreast of the global reach of environmental, energy and land use law.  Many of MGKF’s attorneys have additional degrees in science, engineering and land use planning, and others have served with state and federal regulatory agencies.

A substantial portion of the firm's practice involves environmental litigation before administrative tribunals and in federal and state courts. The firm vigorously defends its clients in a broad variety of enforcement actions, appeals of agency determinations and Superfund cases, and has also brought and defended private cost recovery actions arising under Superfund and state law and toxic tort suits. MGKF has successfully defended high profile projects against third party challenges.  

MGKF has developed an extensive regulatory counseling practice providing advice to clients on the myriad of current and emerging environmental requirements. Advice is provided in the context of regulatory compliance, permitting, brownfields, real estate and business transactions, and enforcement actions. Guidance is also provided in performing environmental audits and developing corporate environmental policies and procedures.  

Our firm is one of the few nationally that employ in-house technical consultants with engineering degrees that work with firm attorneys to provide assistance with the many complex, scientific issues that are an integral part of an environmental law practice.  MGKF’s three technical consultants provide regular guidance to our attorneys and clients regarding technical issues relating to air, water and waste permitting, site remediation, and auditing and compliance issues and also provide litigation support to the firm’s lawyers and clients regarding expert selection, expert report preparation and management of environmental consultants in non-litigation matters.
