New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services

Legal Unit

The Legal Unit of the DES Commissioner’s Office provides legal and administrative support for all enforcement and rulemaking undertaken by DES, and provides legal guidance to DES staff on interpretations of statutes and rules and proposed legislation. The Legal Unit does not serve as general counsel to DES; that role remains with the NH Attorney General’s Office.

As part of DES's statutory obligation to provide clerical and technical support to the N.H. Environmental Councils, the Legal Unit also houses the Appeals Clerk for the Councils.
