She works regularly with government agencies and legislatures in the development and implementation of environmental laws and programs. While Ms. Corash is recognized as one of the country’s leading environmental lawyers, a significant component of her practice has been defending actions brought under state consumer and competition protection statutes. She is considered a leading expert on California’s Proposition 65 and Unfair Competition Laws, having successfully defended hundreds of cases under those statutes. Ms. Corash is nationally recognized as a leader in her field. She has received the highest rating (Band 1) from Chambers USA for every year the directory has ranked environmental lawyers, and has been consistently listed in Best Lawyers in America and Legal 500 US as a leading environmental lawyer. She was named as the country’s #1 environmental lawyer on the “Top Ten Lawyers for Environmental Law,” US Lawyer Rankings 2008. California Lawyer cited her as one of the “Best of the West” because of landmark wins in two Proposition 65 court decisions.
