Gallagher & Kennedy environmental attorneys routinely represent clients in enforcement actions brought by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and analogous state agencies. These enforcement actions involve clients in all manufacturing sectors, with particular emphasis on the following industries:
Since 2000, EPA has been targeting these industries with increased scrutiny to ensure compliance with air and hazardous waste laws and regulations. We have represented many companies during these inspections and in subsequent enforcement actions.
Our national expertise and relationships in Washington, D.C. and in EPA Regional Offices enable us to provide our clients with efficient and effective representation. Our experience in agriculture, utility, technology, and mining and mineral processing issues allows us to represent these industries in complex enforcement issues associated with federal and state regulatory matters. We have represented clients in enforcement actions in all EPA Regions. In addition, we have represented clients in environmental and health and safety enforcement actions brought by agencies in Arizona, New Mexico, and several other states.
