Public Policy

The lawyers at Land Air Water Legal Solutions LLC frequently participate in efforts to inform environmental and energy public policy in a variety of forums, including interaction with regulators and legislators from one-on-one meetings to leadership of stakeholder groups. Another example of such efforts included our lawyers work participating in the federal rulemaking process for the residual risk NESHAP for Halogenated Solvent Cleaning. In that matter and in response to our written submissions and meetings with agency staff, US EPA significantly modified the rule, after its proposal in the Federal Register, to exempt our client’s industry from the regulation. Lawyers at the firm also participate in solid waste and air stakeholder groups, and often work on behalf of clients with regulatory agencies to shape future rulemaking and regulatory interpretations. We also have represented clients in litigation with and against environmental agencies and local government, which has shaped the scope of agency authority and rulemaking.
