Prior to entering private practice, Leifer spent more than a decade in key positions at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). During his nearly 15 years at the firm, Leifer has built an extensive national federal practice that focuses on environmental litigation, toxic tort, product liability and Superfund practice areas.

Baker Botts Managing Partner Walt Smith was quoted as saying: “Steve has a proven ability to manage complex matters for our clients to produce the best results for them on a consistent basis. He has a broad knowledge of environmental law that will suit him well in this new position.”

Leifer is national counsel to various petroleum and chemical companies with respect to product liability lawsuits across the country. He has been involved in high-profile issues across the country, including class action lawsuits arising out of alleged exposure to hazardous substances and compliance issues associated with Superfund, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA), the Clean Water Act, and the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA).
