Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP

Environmental, Health and Safety

For 30 years, Dewey & LeBoeuf LLP's environmental, health and safety (EHS) practice group has delivered sophisticated and creative solutions to complex EHS issues.

In the United States, our environmental attorneys represent clients before federal, state, and local courts and governmental agencies on a wide variety of regulatory, legislative, and civil and criminal litigation matters. Many have spent years in high-level positions in federal and state environmental and prosecutorial agencies. Several possess advanced professional degrees in engineering and scientific disciplines, while others have held positions in-house and thus, have first-hand experience of the business realities our clients face.

This depth of experience is replicated across our global network, particularly in London, where our EHS team is now one of the largest and most experienced in Europe, with market-leading practitioners in all areas of contentious and non-contentious EHS practice.

Our US and international environmental lawyers have been highly visible in matters of global concern, such as climate change and the evolution of corporate social responsibility (CSR), working with government authorities, industries and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to effect significant changes in policy and law.

In the area of health and safety, our attorneys offer a similar breadth of knowledge and experience. Their practice encompasses not only general workplace health and safety issues at federal and state levels, but with Dewey & LeBoeuf's decades of experience representing the energy industry, those issues raised by the regulations and programs governing pipeline health and safety. Many have technical backgrounds that further inform our understanding of these matters.
