Schiff Hardin has added two partners and an associate to its environmental group from Foley & Lardner. Joining the firm’s Chicago office are partners Russell B. Selman and Bradley S. Rochlen and associate J. Michael Showalter.
The trio focuses their practice in the energy sector, Schiff Hardin said in a press release.
“Schiff Hardin has long recognized that environmental issues often drive critical decision-making and business strategy,” said Gabriel M. Rodriguez, leader of Schiff Hardin’s Environmental group. “Our attorneys are some of the best in the country, and the addition of Russ, Brad and Mike further enhances our top-notch, nationally recognized practice.”
Selman’s nationally-recognized practice focuses on representing corporate, real estate and power generation companies in environmental disputes. Prior to entering private practice he was acting assistant enforcement counsel for the EPA in Washington D.C.
Rochlen is a litigator who represents corporate, real estate and power generation companies, including public utilities, in complex environmental disputes. He assists clients in prosecuting and defending hazardous waste control (Superfund) cases, RCRA cases and private cost recovery cases at some of the largest contaminated sites in the country.
