Scarinci Hollenbeck appoints new chair of Environmental Law section

William Sullivan Jr. has been appointed to serve as chair of Scarinci Hollenbeck‘s Environmental Law practice.

Sullivan, who has been with Lyndhurst firm for nearly 20 years and has garnered over 30 years of experience in his practice, has played a key role in the redevelopment of the Meadowlands region as well as numerous projects throughout the state.

“It is an honor to have been chosen to serve as chair, and I am thrilled by the privilege to lead this prestigious group of attorneys,” Sullivan said.

Over the past 30 years, Sullivan’s practice has spanned the full range of environmental and land use matters. In that time, Sullivan has become a sought-after attorney for representation in development and redevelopment projects throughout the state.

His knowledge of land use permitting and various regulations as they relate to environmental compliance has enabled Sullivan to secure vital approvals required to move several major projects forward in the region, including warehousing, hotels, restaurants, retail centers and multifamily residential projects.

His considerable experience also includes environmental land use permitting with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, including wetlands, flood hazard areas and coastal and tidelands applications. He also represents municipal land use bodies, including planning boards and historic preservation commissions.

“It has been a pleasure working with Bill over the years,” Partner Ted Schwartz said. “He is an enormous asset to the section, and I have no doubt he will prove himself to be an excellent leader.”
