The team possesses unique skill sets in helping these clients handle pesticide and chemical competition and regulatory matters, battery and electronics industry issues, the regulation of the transportation of hazardous products, the economic and regulatory implications of climate change and the laws applicable to environmental advertising and "green" marketing. We also assist clients on a variety of occupational health and product stewardship matters.
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.
