Ryan Carra Named NLR Go-To Thought Leader for Chemical Products Litigation

The National Law Review (NLR) recently named Principal Ryan Carra (Washington, DC) a "Go-To Thought Leader" in Products Liability for his work in Chemical Products Litigation. This is the second year the NLR has formally recognized the unique talents of less than 1% of their authors.

NLR’s “Go-To Thought Leadership Awards” recognize 75 authors in 35 legal practice areas selected from a pool of over 100,000 legal news articles published by the National Law Review in 2019. Recipients not only demonstrate a depth of legal knowledge but also outline the steps needed for compliance and/or adaptation. These designated authors are not only reader favorites but are often quoted in other publications and/or syndicated in other media.

“NLR’s online edition was developed by and for in-house attorneys, so we wanted to recognize thought leaders who identify and sort through the torrent of daily legal news and highlight the developments that require attention, as corporate attorneys tend to be generalists," said NLR Managing Director Jennifer Schaller. "We also looked for practical guidance that provides a blueprint for action.”

Ryan utilizes his extensive technical background to assist in counseling clients in the electronics, chemicals, and energy sectors regarding a variety of environmental regulatory issues. He has advised on questions relating to waste classification, chemical hazard classification, chemical notification requirements, and requirements relating to radiation-emitting equipment both domestically and abroad. He has extensively advised clients on Toxic Substances Control Act issues following the 2016 amendments.

Ryan has reviewed marketing materials and drafted internal guidance documents for large consumer products companies seeking to ensure compliance with environmental marketing enforcement guidance around the globe, including the Federal Trade Commission’s Green Guides. He has also counseled clients on Clean Air Act enforcement matters and has worked closely with regulators to draft environmental covenants containing complex land use restrictions.
