    Biography

    Ann Catino practices primarily in the areas of environmental, utilities, and land use law. Prior to joining the firm, she spent over eleven years in private practice representing private and public sector clients in matters involving land use and real estate development and transfer; permitting and regulatory compliance; property remediation and environmental litigation. She appears regularly before federal and state environmental and siting agencies, local regulatory boards and all courts in superfund litigation, private cost recovery claims and federal/state enforcement actions. She represents clients in environmental and utility matters and issues before the Connecticut Department of Environmental Protection, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Connecticut Siting Council and numerous local commissions and authorities. She has also represented development projects - from power plant development to retail to manufacturing to entertainment.

    Ann is currently involved in permitting a transmission line running under Long Island Sound from New Haven, Connecticut to Shoreham, New York, and a substation in New Haven. She has previously represented the developers of a 32 MW wood-to-energy facility. She was also counsel for the developers of the Meadows Music Centre, a 30,000 seat concert center built in Hartford atop an old urban landfill and former railroad property, which was the first indoor/outdoor performing arts facility in the country. Developing this site required balancing the needs of the developers with the requirements imposed by the DEP and the concern for public health and safety. The Meadows was one of the first Brownfields projects developed with the use of state funds dedicated for the cleanup of economically developable but environmentally challenged properties.

    In addition, Ann routinely represents owners and operators of manufacturing facilities, shopping centers, gas stations and commercial enterprises as well as quasi-public agencies, universities and municipalities in varying capacities involving permitting, compliance and enforcement. She advises clients as to the proper investigation and remediation of property, the Connecticut Transfer Act, air, water discharge, hazardous waste, solid waste, water diversion and underground storage tank compliance.

    In litigation-related matters, she has served as lead joint defense counsel in the Beacon Heights and Laurel Park Superfund litigation, which was tried in Federal District Court in Connecticut from January - July 1998. She also has litigated various commercial cases, environmental claims, and citizen suits arising under both federal and state environmental laws.

    Ann has been recognized by Best Lawyers in America in the categories of Litigation - Environmental as well as Litigation - Land Use & Zoning.
