With a background in engineering and industry, Larry Burke supports his clients through an interdisciplinary approach to his environmental, health and safety practice. Over the course of a legal career spanning three decades, Larry has observed that the issues facing his clients rarely fit neatly into legal, business, and technical classifications, and are most effectively approached with a little prudent creativity.
Larry's work encompasses a range of issues, including those relevant to consumer products, groundwater contamination, and toxic exposures. Larry assists facilities in hazardous and universal waste management, air permitting, environmental auditing, asbestos, Superfund issues, and OSHA compliance. He represents clients in litigation involving citizen suits, RCRA, CERCLA, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and California's Proposition 65. Larry also provides advice on insurance coverage and representation in insurance coverage disputes.
