Kampf’s expertise lies in environmental due diligence, investigation, and remediation of E-designation, brownfield, Superfund, and spill sites, related strategic planning, and regulatory negotiations.

Kampf recently led a team awarded the 2019 Big Apple Award for Environmental Protection from the NYC Brownfield Partnership, and is currently working on projects across the City and in Connecticut.  Chazen has private and public environmental projects throughout New York City. Kampf will work on these as well as new client sites.
