Judah Prero focuses his practice on counseling clients on environmental, health, and safety issues before legislators, regulators and government agencies. He advises on chemical management laws and regulations, including laws under the jurisdiction of the Environmental Protection Agency, the Consumer Products Safety Commission, and the Department of Homeland Security. He has counseled the chemical industry on programs that regulate commercial and consumer use chemicals, pesticides and antimicrobials, as well as those ensuring the security and safety of the use and handling of those materials both at facilities and in transport.

He brings to his practice extensive experience having worked as the Assistant General Counsel at the American Chemistry Council. In that capacity, he was the lead attorney representing industry in the drafting and negotiation of the Frank R. Lautenberg Chemical Safety for the 21st Century Act, legislation that substantively amended the Toxic Substances Control Act for the first time in almost 4 decades. Earlier in his career, Mr. Prero spent nearly a decade at the New York City Department of Environmental Protection. He also has served as Assistant Maryland State Attorney General for the Maryland Department of the Environment.
