Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC is dedicated to representing the legal interests of port authorities in a wide variety of litigation, regulatory and environmental matters. We have significant experience in representing our port authority clients in environmental and land use matters, including claims directed at remediating contaminated properties and submerged lands, restoring injured natural resources, managing dredge material and dredge disposal facilities, and prosecuting claims designed to recoup economic and property damages resulting from a nuisance or trespass impacting commerce or created by hazardous materials.
Additionally, we have represented port authorities in a broad range of commercial and construction disputes, tariff interpretations and enforcement matters, issues affecting dredging and dredge material management, United States Army Corps of Engineers regulations and permitting, lease and easement negotiations and litigation, and emergency response and security measures.
At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, we work hard to bring added value to our representation and learn more about our port clients through investing our time and resources in organizations that are important to them. Thus, we regularly attend and present at a variety of industry and trade groups impacting our clients, such as the America Association of Port Authorities (AAPA), Texas Ports Association (TPA), Gulf Ports Association of the Americas (GPAA), and the Gulf Intracoastal Canal Association (GICA).
By regularly attending and participating in port industry organizations, we better understand our clients' businesses and are able to identify trends and opportunities that could impact our clients' business and legal interests.
