Jill has a wide variety of experience in environmental and safety counseling and litigation. She has handled many Occupational Safety and Health Administration ("OSHA") compliance and enforcement matters for clients across the country including matters involving fatalities and serious injuries, challenging Citations, advising on OSHA programs and procedures, and submitting comments on and challenging new OSHA standards. Jill’s environmental practice is equally varied and includes designing, overseeing and performing environmental health and safety audits; advising clients on environmental aspects of real estate development and management and ways to limit their potential liability; and assisting clients to comply with complex regulatory schemes such as hazardous and non-hazardous waste regulations, stormwater requirements, Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act requirements, and Superfund and cleanup laws. Other areas where Jill has in-depth experience include asbestos, mold and indoor air quality and environmental insurance. Jill’s diverse practice stems from the broad range of clients she has represented, including a global manufacturer of lead-acid batteries, a leading telecommunications company, a national drug store chain, railroads, hospitals, port facilities, and prominent brownfields redevelopers.
