Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner attorneys have extensive experience in helping clients both avoid and defend against criminal enforcement of environmental laws. We work closely with clients to prevent or minimize formal charges by providing counsel and guidance during governmental investigations. In the event of prosecution, we have extensive experience in negotiating and structuring dispositions of criminal matters and in the trial of complex criminal cases. We also provide counseling, internal company investigations and compliance audits to clients to prevent or eliminate potentially unlawful conduct and to evaluate the strength of company internal policies and procedures designed to detect and reduce such conduct. We also provide advice on the availability of voluntary disclosure and other corrective measures.
