Practices  |  Environment & Safety

Overview

Wiley Rein’s Environment & Safety Practice brings a unique set of skills to the representation of businesses and trade associations at both the Federal and State levels and in international forums.  Substantively, we are recognized leaders in handling pesticide and chemical competition and regulatory matters, battery and electronics industry issues, the regulation of the transportation of hazardous products, environmentally-based land use programs such as the Endangered Species Act (ESA), and the laws applicable to product stewardship.   We also assist clients on a variety of traditional pollution control, consumer product safety and energy efficiency matters.  Procedurally, we counsel, litigate, stimulate, or respond to regulatory proposals and support legislative lobbying.  

Our internationally recognized attorneys, consultants, and regulatory analysts leverage the firm’s exceptional policy, regulatory, and litigation depth to advance their clients’ needs before Congress, all applicable federal government agencies, at the state and municipal level, and before the European Union (EU), the United Nations (UN), and other international authorities.
