Virtually all companies in all industry sectors are faced with myriad of federal, state and local laws and regulations related to environmental, health and safety (EHS) matters. Shipman & Goodwin’s multidisciplinary environmental team advises clients on not only existing EHS requirements, but also industry standards, and emerging developments with respect to environmental legislation, regulation, policy, and management on a national, regional and local level.
Our environmental practice has been recognized consistently by Chambers & Partners USA, the nation’s preeminent guide to law firms and individual attorneys. According to the 2016 edition of Chambers USA, "Shipman is unique in that it has regional knowledge and partners who have worked on a national and international level.” Several of our environmental lawyers have advanced degrees in the sciences, have clerked for state and federal courts and/or have worked for state EHS regulatory agencies/legislative offices and many have been selected as Super Lawyers®, a national rating service designating lawyers who have achieved a high degree of peer recognition and professional development.
Our national and regional clientele includes manufacturers, developers, lending institutions, educational institutions, healthcare entities, insurance companies, energy companies, and private clients. Our level of service and sophistication of clients across substantive and geographical areas distinguishes us from other firms.
We advise clients on the full range of EHS and energy matters in the business, transactional, regulatory compliance and litigation (administrative, civil and criminal) context. Our clients have required assistance on significant environmental matters in dozens of states and we have recently handled environmental matters for clients nationally in Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Missouri, New Jersey, New Hampshire, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Texas, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin and in Toronto, Canada.
