Biography

Peter A. Alpert

Partner

Peter Alpert has practiced environmental and land use law for nearly thirty years. Peter’s clients include large industrial, corporate and institutional entities, municipalities, financial and strategic investors in real estate, real estate developers, and individuals. The matters he handles are as broad and diverse as the client types. His primary focus is on the remediation of contaminated land under state and federal superfund programs, the entitlement and permitting of complex development projects in Massachusetts, and advising private equity, hedge fund, and strategic clients on the environmental issues that arise in the context of merger and acquisition transactions. His permitting experience spans the full range of entitlement programs, including zoning, wetlands and waterways, historic preservation, transportation, endangered species, water management and water supply and federal and state environmental impact review. His regulatory knowledge spans the full range of federal and state environmental programs, including air, water, wetlands, hazardous waste, waste site cleanup and the regulation of toxic substances and pesticides.

Peter’s environmental practice is generalized, but a substantial part is devoted to federal and state superfund matters, including the negotiation and administration of CERCLA consent decrees, and the oversight of privatized response actions under the Massachusetts Contingency Plan. He has represented the principal PRPs at two of the largest MCP cleanups ever performed. He has represented numerous industrial and institutional clients in defense of federal and state environmental enforcement actions initiated pursuant to federal and state air, water, wastewater, hazardous waste management and wetlands laws.

Boston College Law School was founded in 1929 at 11 Beacon Street in downtown Boston, the first dean, Dennis Dooley, envisioned a law school with a social conscience as well as an analytical mind. From its earliest days, Boston College Law School had a reputation for toughness and high standards. It won accreditation from the American Bar Association in 1932, just three years after its founding, joining the Harvard, Yale, and Boston University law schools as the only ones in New England to attain such a distinction.

The University of Virginia (often abbreviated as UVA, UVa, or Virginia) is a public research university in Charlottesville, Virginia, United States. It was conceived and designed by U.S. President Thomas Jefferson, and established in 1819. UVA's initial Board of Visitors included former Presidents of the United States Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, and James Monroe. Monroe owned the initial site of the University, which was mostly farmland. His law office and farmhouse are now the site of Brown College at Monroe Hill, a residential college at UVA. UVA is one of the eight original Public Ivy universities, and it is the only university campus in the United States that is designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the 2013 edition of U.S. News and World Report's National University Rankings, the school was listed as America's 2nd best public university; tied with UCLA and surpassed only by UC Berkeley.
