B&D Principal Eric Klein Moves to Boston Office
Beveridge & Diamond Principal Eric L. Klein has relocated from the firm's Washington, DC office to the Boston office on June 18, 2018. Eric is a litigator for all types of environmental matters and was part of the Boston trial team that won a total defense victory after a six-week jury trial in federal court in a $12 million cost recovery case. Eric's experience will enhance the Boston office's already strong litigation capabilities.
Eric specializes his litigation practice in matters focusing on water, waste, pesticides, and common-law environmental torts such as negligence and nuisance. He has litigated a variety of complex civil and commercial matters before juries, trial and appellate courts, arbitrators, and administrative tribunals, and specializes in challenging and defending technical experts in the litigation of complex environmental torts.
Among his many accomplishments in environmental litigation, Eric successfully tried the largest environmental citizen suit in U.S. history for the defense in federal court in Seattle in 2016. He also persuaded a Washington, DC court to enter a landmark preliminary injunction in a smoking nuisance action.
Eric is presently admitted to practice in Maryland, Virginia, and the District of Columbia, and will work on Massachusetts matters under the supervision of an attorney who is admitted to practice in Massachusetts while his motion for admission to the Massachusetts bar is pending. His contact information remains the same and can be found on his biography page.
