NEW YORK (PRWEB) April 22, 2020
Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP has launched the Legal Environmental Insights Podcast, offering comprehensive summaries and concrete takeaways on the latest developments and trends in environmental law. The podcast is available on the Greenberg Traurig website, as well as on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify.
The podcast is launching with “Getting Through,” a mini-series focused on environmental concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic. The pilot episode is available now:
- EPA Enforcement Discretion Policy – Steps to remain compliant with federal environmental laws under the EPA’s new policy.
Upcoming episodes include:
- What’s Next for Environmental Law? – An evaluation of new work for environmental law practitioners post-pandemic.
- Environmental Regulations for Pandemic Response Products – Addressing environmental requirements that accompany a new or significantly altered manufacturing process.
“As we all try to identify new ways to communicate, our Greenberg Traurig Legal Environmental Insights podcast affords us the opportunity to provide current up-to-date information related to environmental laws, regulations, and policies that affect a wide-range of businesses,” said Kerri L. Barsh who is co-chair of the firm’s Environmental Practice. “We want our clients, industry colleagues, and business leaders, to stay abreast of environmental issues that can have an effect on business, particularly during these challenging times as the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are far-reaching.”
According to environmental shareholder and “Getting Through” mini-series host, Bernadette M. Rappold, “It can be hard to keep track of what’s important with the flood of information circulating during the pandemic. We’re hoping our Getting Through miniseries can provide some bite-size nuggets of helpful environmental information and insights in a format that’s readily accessible and easy to use.”
The podcast is designed to help business leaders, in-house counsel, and entrepreneurs stay current on environmental laws that impact their businesses. Future mini-series will focus on the circular economy, emerging contaminants, and the evolution of energy usage.
