Companies seeking clarity on ever-changing climate change rules and concurrent renewable energy options regularly turn to Arnold & Porter for guidance. Our experience spans regulatory and compliance counseling, participation in rulemaking activities, representation in government and citizen enforcement actions, and defending some of the most significant litigation matters relating to climate change. Our team draws on the distinctive insights and experience of former EPA lawyers with decades of Clean Air Act experience and the director of the Sabin Center for Climate Change Law at Columbia Law School. We represent clients in the automotive, engine, railroad, fuel, electric power, stored energy, and chemical industries across all aspects of the federal Clean Air Act, as well as various state programs, particularly California. We appear regularly before US EPA, the various EPA regional offices, and the California Air Resources Board. Our broader climate change practice also extends to renewable energy and renewable fuel standards, carbon trading, GHG life cycle analysis, environmental assessment of climate impacts under NEPA, state and local climate regulations, climate litigation, green real estate, and fuel efficiency laws and regulations.
The following resources and perspectives address a range of both the large-scale developments and ongoing micro-actions affecting climate change-related regulatory/compliance, rulemaking, enforcement, and litigation issues.
