  • Researching and analyzing waste laws of all major Latin American countries to support a client’s product stewardship and recycling programs;
  • Performing due diligence on the environmental aspects of proposed corporate acquisitions, with properties spread around the world;
  • Assisting companies with the integration of new acquisitions through the transfer of title to environmental permits and product registrations;
  • Researching and analyzing biosafety laws worldwide for potential regulatory impacts on seeds and livestock produced using novel technologies;
  • Advising electronics industry groups on collective advocacy to amend Latin American product take-back and energy efficiency regulations to make compliance practical;
  • Assisting a major metropolitan water treatment plant to secure air emissions permits for new and modified sources and equipment;
