Law360 has named the Squire Patton Boggs Environmental, Safety & Health Practice as one of the top practice groups in the country. Recognized in the “Environmental” category, this marks the practice group’s inaugural spot on the list. Law360 selected law firms that “racked up victories in litigation and closed the big deals to make their mark among clients and throughout the legal industry.”
Composed of more than 50 dedicated, highly experienced team members, the firm’s Environmental, Safety & Health Practice draws its core strengths from complex environmental, safety and health litigation, rulemaking and policy development, compliance counseling, project siting and infrastructure development, property acquisition, site remediation and brownfields redevelopment.
Squire Patton Boggs was selected by Law360 for the high-profile matters the team handled in 2016, including: representing coal giant Murray Energy in several of US EPA’s largest and most significant rulemaking appeals; advising long-time client Union Pacific in five CERCLA response cost contribution lawsuits against Asarco LLP; and representing ArcelorMittal Monessen LLC in defense of a class action toxic tort suit on behalf of more than 8,300 households.
In the awards program’s seventh year, Law360 selected 157 winning groups across 34 practice areas. Winners hailed from 80 law firms and rose to the top of 619 submissions.
