Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)

Leading companies face large and growing risks and opportunities from environmental regulation and related litigation, covering the full gamut from air, water quality, and waste rules affecting all sectors of the economy to approvals needed to bring new pesticides, chemicals, and products to market. 

Leading companies need guidance in navigating high-profile issues at EPA, including how to:

  • Protect and advance their interests in critical rulemakings, environmental permitting and review of major infrastructure projects, as well as how to secure regulatory approvals for chemicals, pesticides, or other products regulated under environmental laws
  • Successfully challenge, or defend, EPA rulemakings or other regulatory actions in the D.C. Circuit or other federal courts
  • Respond to the prospect of an enforcement action under federal environmental laws or to deal with the consequences of a major environmental accident or release
