Environmental & Regulatory Compliance

A major area of the Firm’s practice is concentrated on International, U.S. Federal and State environmental law, regulation and legislation. We are on the forefront of providing advice to corporate clients, ship owners, operators, shore-side management, shipboard staff, transporters of oil and other hazardous products, and their insurers about developing early response systems and implementing effective environmental compliance programs aimed at ensuring awareness and compliance with International, U.S. Federal, State and local governmental regulations, as well as other timely and pertinent information concerning the burgeoning demands being made by governmental enforcement agencies. We regularly represent both corporate and individual clients in connection with U.S. Federal, State and local agency investigations into alleged criminal and/or civil violations.
