Early recognition of Environmental and Chemical Regulation issues and appropriate actions taken prior to agency involvement often provide the difference in successful resolution of compliance matters. Our practical insight, together with dedicated and responsive service, positions you to take advantage of a constantly changing regulatory environment to achieve your strategic goals.
Our Environmental and Chemical Regulation team consists of attorneys who served as in-house environmental counsel with national and multinational companies, as well as attorneys who held non-legal positions within environmental consulting firms and regulatory agencies where they had responsibility for permitting and compliance under various regulatory programs. We also have technical experts in environmental engineering and environmental chemistry with in-house environmental management experience. This broad array of technical and legal experience enables us to understand the practical implications of the regulatory concerns facing your business and find the right strategy for your company to solve – and in many instances avoid – compliance issues.
We provide practical, client-focused advice drawing upon extensive experience in all environmental and hazardous material regulatory programs including air, water, wastes, land use, transportation, toxic chemical regulation, pesticide regulation and site remediation and redevelopment. Among the regulatory services that we provide are:
We have experience in counseling a variety of business entities, including organic and inorganic chemicals manufacturing; metals casting, rolling and fabrication; food and food additive manufacturing; energy industries, such as ethanol production and utilities; electronic components; ammunition and ordnance manufacturing; printing; product and packaging distribution; mining operations; and oil and gas operations, including exploration and production, transportation and retail petroleum operations. Our client list is broad, from Fortune 500 companies to small, family held companies. Our advice is tailored to meet a client’s needs and internal capabilities.
