Steve Jawetz and John Cruden Speaking at Natural Resources Symposium
Principals Steve Jawetz and John Cruden will be speaking at the Ad-Hoc Industry Natural Resource Management Group's 2018 Natural Resources Symposium taking place on September 25-26 in Washington, DC.
The Natural Resources Symposium examines the law and science of current practice under US laws and ways to enhance efficiency, maximize benefits, foster private/public partnerships, support innovation, and more. This year's symposium is titled "Blue Print for Change: New Approaches and Needed Changes to Managing Natural Resource Risks, Liabilities and Opportunities."
John Cruden (Washington, DC) will be participating in a roundtable titled "Case Law since New Bedford Harbor," which will take a look at what has happened since the series of key decisions resulting from the New Bedford Harbor case, which continues to shape outcomes of cases nationally, including what has help shaped the limits to liability and what is missing. The roundtable will take place on September 25 at 10:30 a.m.
Steve Jawetz (Washington, DC) will present in a segment titled "Hazardous Waste Case/Site Review: Extracting Lessons Learned and Elements of Successful Scientific and Legal Practices," which will focus on a limited set of NRD sites/cases under CERCLA and other federal and state laws in order to extract “lessons learned” with emphasis on leveraging approaches and practices that have proved effective for both potentially responsible parties and government and could or should be replicated and/or expanded to other sites. The segment will take place on September 25 at 12:45 p.m.
Associate Felicia Barnes (Seattle) will also be in attendance.
