The owl, a symbol of wisdom, acuity, far-sightedness and perspective, embodies the skills that Sheldon Zabel, our group's founder, instilled in us. The owl was special to Sheldon, and, by using this majestic bird as our group's symbol, it reminds us to keep our practice true to the lessons we were taught — to value the rule of law in all our dealings, to be practical and elegant in the counsel we provide, and to strive for wisdom and far-sightedness as we help our clients navigate the evolving precepts of environmental law.
