Biography

Aminah helps companies navigate environmental regulatory regimes across the product life cycle, from market access obligations at the product development stage to proper end-of-life management.

She focuses her practice on regulatory compliance counseling and environmental enforcement defense matters. She helps clients in a wide range of industries navigate through the myriad of environmental regulatory regimes applicable in the U.S. at the federal, state and local level, with a particular emphasis on California-specific regulatory regimes.

Aminah routinely advises and defends clients on issues arising from California’s state-specific product stewardship programs, product take-back and recycling requirements, hazardous waste and materials management regimes and Proposition 65. Her practice also extends to global environmental and product-related environmental regimes, including chemicals-related market access requirements and electronic waste take-back and recycling obligations.

In addition to her regulatory practice, Aminah has successfully represented clients in civil and administrative enforcement proceedings, contaminated property litigation, citizen suits and administrative permitting challenges.
