Practice Areas

Susan E. Brice has litigated state and federal disputes and counseled clients on complicated scientific issues arising in environmental law, toxic torts and product liability. She works with scientists on matters in the fields of genomics, toxicology and epidemiology in such industries as chemical manufacturing, energy production, food, agriculture and real estate.

Outside of this niche, Ms. Brice litigates commercial matters and advises and mitigates the environmental and exposure risks involved in major transactions, including international mergers and acquisitions, public/private partnership ventures and renewable energy deals. She has extensive experience in all major aspects of environmental law, including significant cases involving the Clean Water Act, CERCLA, RCRA, Clean Air Act, National Environmental Policy Act and project development disputes.

In recent years, her practice has embraced the implications of genomics in legal defense, especially its ability to shed light on causation in toxic tort cases. For example, testing can provide evidence that an inherited genetic mutation may be a more likely cause of a certain medical condition than exposure to a particular toxicant.
