EEC was proud to be a continued Sponsor of the California Lawyers Association 31st Annual Environmental Law Conference at Yosemite®, Thursday through Sunday, October 13-16, 2022.
The conference was held in person this year! EEC’s experts John Shaffer, Marked Zeko, and Emily Vavricka exhibited at the 2022 conference. We hope you had a chance to stop by EEC’s booth to learn about emerging issues in Environmental Law and Science, including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), microplastics, environmental justice, PPD-Quinone, renewable energy, and climate change.
The 31st Annual Environmental Law Conference is nationally recognized as the largest and most prestigious gathering in California of leaders in environmental, land use, and natural resources law. The conference is an opportunity to gather with the nation’s top environmental officials, lawyers, and other professionals in the beautiful setting of Yosemite.
The conference was held at the Tenaya Lodge in “The Gateway to Yosemite” and qualified for up to 11.5 Hours MCLE Credit. A keynote presentation by Martha Guzman, EPARegional Administrator for the Pacific Southwest Region, on Friday kicked off the weekend of discussion panels, spoke sessions, and opportunities for networking.
EEC provides a broad spectrum of litigation support ranging from scientific investigations to expert testimony in state and federal courts. We support litigation matters related to contamination of soil, soil vapor, and groundwater; geologic and hydrogeological issues; industrial wastewater, and emerging issues including per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and microplastics. Our staff has experience with plaintiff and defense representation, giving us a professional knowledge of tactics and strategies that will be encountered in litigation, and allowing us to present an unbiased perspective to judge and jury. EEC has been involved with numerous high-profile litigation cases and has consistently worked seamlessly as part of a team in preparing technical portions of a case.
Our services are most often utilized to prevent litigation from occurring in the first place, by preventing or reducing liability exposure, fines, administrative penalties, and negative press. Our staff has extensive experience collecting and analyzing technical data to provide a reliable scientific basis for overcoming or minimizing contentious issues.
