One of the first environmental practices established at a major national law firm, the Morgan Lewis environmental practice handles some of the largest, most complex environmental matters in the United States, including the Aliso Canyon natural gas leak, the explosion and release of hydrocarbons into the Gulf of Mexico from the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, and the Tronox fraudulent transfer litigation. We are one of the nation’s “go-to” environmental practices, and clients come to us for high-stakes environmental litigation, crisis management, mass tort, multiparty hazardous waste proceedings, and all manner of highly technical compliance issues. With more than 50 lawyers who practice environmental law exclusively from offices across the nation, we bring creative thinking, know-how, and a deep bench to virtually every type of environmental matter. We take great pride in our ability to find creative solutions to complex problems, and when a collaborative solution is unavailable, we achieve decisive results through litigation.
Our valued clients are some of the world’s largest companies, including major oil, oil service, and energy companies such as Anadarko, Shell, Chevron, Exxon, and Schlumberger; utilities such as Southern California Edison, Sempra Energy, and Exelon; manufacturers and trading companies such as Arkema, Solvay, Sherwin-Williams, and Mitsui; and municipalities and quasi-government agencies.
