Most environmental statutes now contain criminal sanctions, and corporate executives can be subject to criminal prosecution not only for contributing to pollution and other environmental hazards, but also for failing to report those hazards. We have a wealth of experience in federal and state criminal enforcement cases. For example, we represented an international agricultural company in connection with a criminal enforcement matter under the Clean Water Act, negotiating an extremely favorable settlement for the company. We have also represented companies in internal and other investigations involving such statutes as the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the Clean Air Act, the Oil Pollution Act, and the Clean Water Act. Our attorneys are experienced in evaluating the risks and benefits of voluntary cooperation and disclosure, as well as in counseling companies on how to improve their environmental compliance programs. For example, we were retained by a large industrial company to undertake a review of their environmental management and compliance systems and to advise it on steps that could be undertaken to reduce the likelihood of future government enforcement actions.
