The practice of environmental law today requires the deep appreciation that Adam Kushner has for the differing perspectives of stakeholders who have a voice on the many high-profile and complex environmental issues of our day.

Widely recognized nationally as having keen insight and deep knowledge of the authority of the government to enforce federal environmental law, Adam is called upon by many clients to help them navigate difficult and potentially high-profile environmental enforcement, compliance, and governance issues. Adam has more than 30 years of knowledge and experiences, both in and out of government, and brings that to bear as a director of the firm's Environment Practice Group.

Adam was a federal prosecutor and the national director of EPA's air and civil enforcement programs. During the course of his public service, and continuing at Hogan Lovells, Adam has litigated, negotiated, and resolved many matters arising under the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and the Superfund statute. Adam works regularly with refineries, petrochemical manufacturers, oil and gas producers, and other industrial concerns.

Importantly, Adam is a thought leader on issues of big picture environmental enforcement policy as well as the details of the many programs underlying those policy choices, which he brings to bear in his work with clients.
