Within: Environment: litigation

Mayer Brown’s ‘service is extremely good’. The team acts in high-stakes matters, such as air enforcement cases involving the CAA New Source Review program, criminal environmental prosecutions, and major development projects. It represented several industry groups in challenging the legality of the EPA’s new regulation defining the waters of the US. The team also defended CSX Transportation in several environmental tort lawsuits that alleged personal injuries and property damage resulting from the 2012 derailment of a Conrail train. The practice’s co-chairs are Chicago-based Richard Bulger, who acts for clients in the chemical, utility, scrap metal, railroad, and ranching industries, and Mark Ter Molen, whose experience includes toxic tort trials and appeals, as well as putative class actions. Also in Chicago, Timothy Bishop has substantial experience in environmental and land use litigation; in Washington DC, ‘the extremely knowledgeableJohn Hahnalways has the client’s best interests at heart’; and Dan Himmelfarb and Evan Tager, and counsel Roger Patrick, are also widely praised.
