"Larry Kirsch's breadth of experience in the environmental area makes him a good choice for superfund cases, including complex sediment sites. He is also effective in environmental disputes arising from transactions and other brownfield redevelopment issues. His low-key style and formidable intellect make him particularly effective in a group negotiation or multiparty dispute."

"Laurence Kirsch has extremely strong environmental knowledge and is excellent at negotiating results with third parties and with government representatives. D.C. prices are high, but results obtained are also excellent. He knows many insiders at EPA and that's helpful."

"Larry Kirsch's low-key style and formidable intellect make him particularly effective in a group negotiation or multiparty dispute."

"I can't say enough about Larry Kirsch's expertise, timeliness, and standing. What sets him above others is his ability to be effective as an advocate in multi-party matters while maintaining at all times the ability to be calm, persuasive, and a true gentleman. His arguments are extremely well thought out and his calm demeanor combined with his intellect is all that is necessary."
