Adam M. Kushner
The practice of environmental law today requires a deep appreciation and Adam Kushner has the differing perspectives of stakeholders who have a voice on the many high-profile and complex environmental issues of our day.
Widely recognized nationally as being knowledgeable about the authority of the government in the enforcement of federal environmental law, Adam is called upon by many clients to help them navigate difficult and potentially high-profile environmental enforcement, compliance, and governance issues. Adam has more than 30 years of knowledge and skill, both in and out of government, and brings that to bear as a director of the firm's Environment Practice Group.
Adam was a federal prosecutor and the national director of EPA's air and civil enforcement programs. During the course of his public service, and continuing at Hogan Lovells, Adam has litigated, negotiated, and resolved many matters arising under the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Superfund statute. Adam works regularly with refineries, petrochemical manufacturers, oil and gas producers, and other industrial concerns.
Importantly, Adam is a thought leader on issues of big picture, environmental enforcement policy, as well as the details of the many programs underlying those policy choices, which he brings to bear in his work with clients.
