HGS Attorney Olsen Presents at National Mitigation and Ecosystems Banking Conference

|

Hopping Green & Sams (HGS) attorney Eric Olsen recently presented at the National Mitigation and Ecosystems Banking Conference on the subject of state laws and policies that benefit privately owned mitigation and conservation banks. The National Mitigation and Ecosystems Banking Conference was held this year in Fort Worth, Texas, and was attended by individuals who own or work in the business of operating wetland mitigation banks or conservation banks that provide “credits” to offset impacts to wetlands and endangered species regulated by federal and state wetlands and listed species programs. Mr. Olsen also attended the annual meeting of the National Mitigation Banking Association. A significant portion of Mr. Olsen’s practice involves assisting clients in establishing and operating wetland mitigation banks and conservation banks.
