My background allows me to provide insightful transactional, regulatory, and litigation advice for businesses navigating the complex environmental aspects of conducting business in the energy, natural resources, manufacturing, and real estate sectors.

I am the Chair of Bradley Arant Boult Cummings' Environmental Team and Energy Team.

Experience

I represent clients in a broad array of environmental matters, including due diligence; transactions involving natural resources and contaminated properties; brownfield redevelopment; permitting; regulatory compliance; emergency and accident response; and investigation, removal, and remediation efforts associated with environmental spills and clean-up of contaminated sites.  My environmental litigation practice also runs the gamut of environmental matters, including representation of clients in enforcement actions, citizen's suits, toxic tort litigation, Superfund, and nuisance and trespass claims.
