Dennis Toft of CSG Law Tops ROI-NJ Influencers: Environment 2023 List

Chiesa Shahinian & Giantomasi PC (“CSG Law”) is pleased to announce that Dennis M. Toft, a Member of the Firm and Chair of CSG Law’s Environmental Law Group, was recently named to the number one spot on ROI-NJ’s inaugural Influencers list for the Environment.

“It would be easy to call this a lifetime achievement award,” ROI-NJ said in the announcement. “Toft, of course, has been recognized as one of the top environmental lawyers for decades — one whose impact on the state goes far beyond legal proceedings, into the shaping of policy and regulations that have helped both the environmental and business community.”

It continued: “Doing so, however, would overlook the present and the future. Toft is as impactful and influential now as he has ever been — a go-to source for environmentalists, government officials and business leaders.”

“It’s for these reasons and more that Toft is No. 1 on the inaugural ROI Influencers: Environment list,” the publication said.

Dennis is regarded as one of the Garden State’s leading Brownfields redevelopment practitioners, and he regularly provides counsel on all aspects of environmental law, including regulatory counseling, environmental due diligence, permitting, enforcement and environmental litigation, redevelopment, and environmental insurance. Moreover, Dennis played a significant role in the adoption of the New Jersey Brownfields and Contaminated Site Remediation Act, and in the development and adoption of the New Jersey Site Remediation Reform Act, which establishes a Licensed Site Remediation Professional program in New Jersey.

Dennis regularly appears before the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, the Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, municipal land use boards and the Office of Administrative Law, and in state and federal courts.

Dennis also serves on the Executive Board of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce and chairs the Chamber’s Environment and Energy Initiative, providing guidance on a wide variety of legislative and regulatory issues. In addition, Dennis is a Trustee of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, he serves on the Board of the NJ Chapter of the Nature Conservancy, and he is Pro Bono counsel for the Friends of the NJ School of Conservation. He was also elected by his peers to be a fellow of the American College of Environmental Lawyers.
