LEI has a highly trained staff of environmental professionals experienced at completing environmental analyses, including Federal National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) analyses.  LEI combines state-of-the-art technology with extensive experience of seasoned natural resource professionals to provide turn-key and effective project solution.  

When project needs dictate, we pride ourselves in our ability to successfully team with environmental science and other professional services firms to provide comprehensive environmental analysis solutions.  In many ways, LEI’s multi-firm team management approach is very similar to a large firm with key staff located at different branch offices or locations.  LEI has mastered the ability to pull multi-firm teams together to efficiently and effectively address client needs as if the effort were coming from a single firm.  This means that we can effectively and efficiently complete a wide array of large multi-disciplinary projects.
