United States: Industry focus

Environment: litigation

Within: Environment: litigation

Bracewell LLP hired Washington DC-based David Super, whose experience includes environmental claims under the Clean Air Act (CAA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) and CERCLA, from Baker Botts L.L.P.. The firm’s environmental litigation depth, coupled with its significant white-collar defense, appellate, and environmental regulatory practices, enables it to handle large, complex environmental litigation. The practice’s areas of activity include upstream and midstream shale energy development; government enforcement defense; air permitting and climate change; Superfund and contamination issues; and accident investigation and defense. The team was lead counsel to Valero Energy and its subsidiaries in a lawsuit against the EPA for failing to take required action under the Renewable Fuel Standard of the CAA. Houston-based Christopher Dodson and Austin managing partner Timothy Wilkins co-chair the environmental litigation practice, while Jason Hutt is environmental practice chair. Other recommended Washington DC contacts are Kevin Ewing and Jeffrey Holmstead. Austin’s Kevin Collins is a former assistant US attorney for the Eastern District of Texas; and Sara Burgin is particularly noted for water issues.
