Practice/Industry Group Overview
Jones Day's lawyers have been involved in some of the most high-profile and precedent-setting environmental matters in the history of environmental law, including the emerging area of climate change.
Many of our lawyers have practiced environmental, health, and safety law since its inception in the early 1970s, and several have served in federal agencies, including the EPA and the Department of Justice.
Forty environmental lawyers in offices throughout the world work as an integrated team with 50 other Jones Day lawyers who focus on related areas, such as real estate and property, chemicals, food, consumer products, toxic tort, insurance coverage litigation, European Union counseling, and OSHA counseling and trial practice.
Our lawyers help clients evaluate the regulatory, liability, and workplace safety and health issues that could affect business transactions; comply with regulations, including those governing climate change and emissions; handle complex and costly environmental litigation; pursue alternative methods of dispute resolution; and structure creative settlements.
