Marta Orpiszewska helps clients pursue effective environmental, health, and safety strategies in their business operations, commercial transactions, and contaminated-land cleanups.

Marta works with clients to anticipate and respond to environmental issues and evaluate potential liabilities and risks as clients assess investment and transactional opportunities. She also counsels clients in heavily regulated industries, including energy, banking, and pharmaceutical with respect to compliance with a broad array of federal, state, and local environmental, health, and safety laws and regulations.

She has a particular focus on compliance counseling, commercial transactions, enforcement action response, and contaminated-land cleanup and brownfield redevelopment under federal and state environmental laws. Marta's in-depth experience and acute attention to detail provides clients with a tailored blueprint to properly navigate legal challenges in pursuit of their business objectives.

While in law school, Marta served as a notes and comments editor for The North Carolina Journal of International Law and was an active member of the Environment Society. Prior to attending law school, Marta received a master's degree in environmental policy and regulation from the London School of Economics.
