Hogan Lovells Environmental partner Adam Kushner served as a panelist on an enforcement panel at the ABA's 41st Annual Conference on Environmental Law in Salt Lake City, Utah. Covering both civil and criminal enforcement, the panel provided practical information for practitioners regarding federal enforcement initiatives, including areas on which the government is focusing: what industries likely will be targeted; trends in penalties; significant, recent, and ongoing enforcement actions; legal theories being argued; and recent developments in applicable law. The panel also discussed EPA penalty policies, including their purpose, how they actually work, and tips for presenting mitigation factors, as well as other strategies for reducing clients’ exposure.
