Chemicals

The responsible handling and storage of chemicals, as well as the regulation of chemical facilities, not only present environmental challenges, but are also often issues of national security. With the passage of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the chemical field has become one of the most closely watched and rapidly changing areas of practice. Understanding the opportunities and challenges surrounding this nascent law, our team provides compliance assistance and counseling advice for all TSCA-regulated activities.

Our professionals have over 30 years of compliance and litigation experience, as well as technical knowledge – both on the government enforcement side and in private practice – with TSCA and related federal and state regulations affecting chemical manufacturers, importers, processors. We not only help companies anticipate, analyze, develop solutions, and implement compliant operations that involve regulated chemicals but are also well positioned to help clients shape the next iteration of the governing rules and regulations.

On the national security front, we our team can also provide assistance with interpreting the provisions of the Chemical Facilities Anti-Terrorism Standards Act (CFATS) as well as provide access to officials at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to help our clients advocate their positions when necessary.
