In a former incarnation, I was an environmental lawyer with Morrison and
Foerster (and earlier with Orrick Herrington), working primarily on superfund
and other contamination sites. While in private practice I had written a
book on my particular area of specialty within this field -- the
transactional and business aspects of environmental contamination. I
continue to be active in this field as well, as a consultant and advisor to
many entities (law firms, corporations, non-profit organizations, community
groups, and government agencies) specializing in developing cooperation and
consensus in response to environmental problems and conservation imperatives.
I really appreciate this newsgroup, and the opportunity to examine many
aspects of the brownfields issue and many new perspectives on it.
