Brands and business operations can suffer when facing an environmental enforcement action from the government. With attorneys on our team who previously held senior government positions in environmental administration, enforcement, and policy, we provide strategic approaches to avoiding or resolving administrative and judicial (civil and criminal) environmental enforcement actions. Our team of nearly 20 attorneys dedicated exclusively to practicing environmental law routinely defends clients in high-stakes enforcement actions.
When litigation cannot be avoided, we negotiate favorable terms and outcomes on behalf of our clients, always with their business goals in mind. We know that a mishandled response may cause delays in reaching strategic goals and impact a client’s reputation and standing in their communities.
We have represented clients in matters relating to all major environmental statutes including the Clean Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).
