Adam TroutwineAdam Troutwine

Polsinelli, P.C.

Adam Troutwine represents corporations, organizations, and individuals confronting environmental issues in transactional, permitting, compliance, and litigation settings. Adam draws from his litigation experience before federal courts, state courts, and government agency tribunals to defend clients against enforcement actions and to secure contested permits. He has obtained successful outcomes for clients in agency hearings, alternative dispute resolution proceedings, and bench trials. Adam appreciates the value of a strong working relationship between industry and regulators. He facilitates client participation in stakeholder groups that work directly with agencies to form policy and draft regulations impacting owners of underground storage tanks and the mining and energy industries. Adam has worked on behalf of mine and quarry operators to navigate permitting processes in order to open new mine sites, has represented clients in contested hearings before state agencies, has prosecuted appeals of agency decisions to the circuit and appellate court, and has appeared before county zoning boards to secure necessary authorizations to conduct mining or quarrying activity. He has assessed permitting needs for utility-scale renewable energy projects in Kansas and Oklahoma, oil and gas exploration and production facilities in Kansas and Louisiana, and limestone and shale mining operations in Missouri. Adam also aids real estate developers in quickly addressing environmental issues that arise.
