Hogan Lovells has added a partner to its environmental practice in Washington, the firm announced Thursday.
Adam Kushner, formerly the director of the office of civil enforcement for the Environmental Protection Agency, brings expertise on air enforcement and high-stakes litigation. His work will deal with matters including manufacturing, energy, transportation, chemicals and agriculture.
In his previous role, Kushner oversaw national enforcement of the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, the Resource Conservation and the Recovery Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act, among others.
“With his many years in high-profile national leadership positions at EPA and his background in nearly all aspects of environmental regulation and litigation, Adam Kushner is uniquely qualified to understand the agency and the evolving regulatory landscape,” Jeanne Archibald, global practice group leader of Hogan's government regulatory group, said in a written statement.
