Lead Counsel for National Public Company Charged as Primary Corporate Target of Criminal Environmental Investigation


  • Served as lead counsel for national public company—a government contractor—which was the primary target of a sweeping environmental criminal investigation involving two dozen targets; client company charged with numerous unlawful discharges into storm sewer system of large municipality, based on extensive undercover operation in which government investigators acquired on-site and contemporaneous photographic evidence and admissions by company personnel; conducted broad field investigation including witness statements deflecting responsibility onto subcontractors and engineering and chemical analysis showing negligible harm; assisted in implementation of enhanced environmental compliance program at client company, presenting all evidence and legal arguments to government prosecutors in lengthy presentations.
 
Result: Client company was only target not indicted; neither company nor its employees ever charged.
