Senior counsel David E. Menotti and partner Warren U. Lehrenbaum have joined Crowell & Moring LLP’s Environment & Natural Resources Group.

Based in the firm’s Washington, D.C. office, the attorneys bring significant experience in representing agribusiness, biotechnology, and manufacturing companies in the wide range of regulatory counseling and litigation needs arising under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA-APHIS).

In today’s press release at the firm’s site, Crowell & Moring partner Chet M. Thompson, former EPA deputy general counsel and co-chair of the firm’s ENR Group was quoted as saying: “David and Warren have earned a national reputation for handling some of the most complex matters for America’s largest companies. Their move to Crowell & Moring comes at a critical time for our clients, who are navigating significant changes in environmental law and regulation right now.”

Menotti and Lehrenbaum are currently advising clients on a variety of environmental concerns, including a comprehensive review of the Clean Air Act New Source Performance Standards for residential wood heating devices, proposed legislation related to Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), and APHIS’s proposed overhaul of the regulations governing the approval of genetically engineered crops. Additionally, they are active in assisting clients navigate what some cite as a “collision course” between the Endangered Species Act (ESA) consultation process and the registration of pesticides under the Federal Insecticide Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA).

The arrival of Menotti and Lehrenbaum builds on the firm’s 2009 addition of five Patton Boggs LLP partners and two senior hires from the EPA and U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI). The group is now ranked among the top environmental practices in Washington, D.C. by Chambers USA.

Menotti’s practice emphasizes the regulation of hazardous substances under FIFRA, TSCA, the Clean Air Act, and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (FFDCA).
