B&D Sponsoring, Speaking at ACC Houston Environmental Practice Group Inaugural Gathering

Beveridge & Diamond will sponsor and present the inaugural gathering of the new Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Houston Environmental Practice Group, taking place on February 21 in Houston, TX. 

B&D Principals Karen Hansen and Laura LaValle (Austin), with Kathleen Bertolatus of Phillips 66 Company, will provide an overview and panel discussion of the EPA and Texas self-audit programs, which can be used to save money and enhance compliance with federal and state environmental programs like the Clean Air Act, RCRA/waste requirements, and Clean Water Act. These programs incentivize self-assessment followed by prompt disclosure and correction of noncompliance in exchange for civil penalty relief. The presentation will cover practical tips on the pros and cons of using these programs, common pitfalls, and best practices.
