Baker McKenzie’s North American Environmental Practice Group

The task of managing environmental risks and liabilities and attending to environmental regulatory issues has never been more critical to the success of commercial and industrial enterprises than it is today. Expanding domestic and international environmental regulatory regimes are creating new compliance obligations for companies operating in an increasingly global marketplace.
