With Environmental Law In Its Sights, Greenberg Glusker Launches New Law Blog
With a renewed focus on the environment – from the recent oil spill in the Gulf, to climate change and energy legislation now pending in Congress, to state and local efforts to cut emissions – Americans are increasingly hungry for news and analysis about this important topic. Responding to this need, the Environmental Law Group at Greenberg Glusker provides readers with a unique and informative environmental news source with the launch of GREENberg bLAWg, a blog that connects the law and the environment.
The site, which can be found at EnvironmentalLawyerBlog.com, includes posts on topics including new developments and trends in legislation, regulation, compliance and litigation.
Recent blog posts on “GREENberg bLAWg,” include:
- Government Sends Mixed Messages Regarding Cleantech Agenda
- Are Current Judicial “Blowout Preventers” Sufficient?
- Timing and Incentives Differentiate Senate and House Climate Bills
- The Race to Regulate Greenhouse Gases
- Coastal Senators Seek Increased Liability for Oil Spills
“We designed this blog to be an accessible and easy-to-read forum for environmental legal news and developments,” said the blog’s editor, Greenberg Glusker attorney Sedina L. Banks, who focuses her practice on environmental litigation and compliance. “Our goal is to provide updates on topics where the environment and the law intersect. And we strive to break the law down so that anyone with an interest can understand these developments.”
Greenberg Glusker has a particularly robust team of environmental attorneys, with more than 10 members of a multidisciplinary team that will contribute posts to the blog. These attorneys’ experience encompass the diverse range of environmental law including Environmental Litigation, Air Quality, Brownfields, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), Clean Technology, Climate Change, Carbon Trading, Environmental Insurance, Green Building, Water Quality, Real Estate Due Diligence and Risk Management and Regulatory Compliance and Counseling.
“What makes this group and this new blog special is that our attorneys bring to the table such a diversity of experience in environmental law and litigation,” said David E. Cranston, chair of Greenberg Glusker’s Environmental Law Group. “We are very pleased to provide this opportunity for them to share their views and insights with our friends, new and old. The blog also further highlights the quality and value our firm brings – across the board – to our clients.”
