Civil And Criminal Investigations And Enforcement Of Environmental Law In New York State

Civil And Criminal Investigations And Enforcement Of Environmental Law In New York State

Civil and Criminal Investigations and Enforcement_675

This program will cover civil and criminal investigations and enforcement of environmental laws by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and the New York State Attorney General’s Office (AG’s Office). A law enforcement Officer at DEC, DEC’s Regional Attorney for New York City, and a criminal prosecutor from the AG’s Office will discuss the kinds of violations that are pursued criminally versus civilly and how cases move through DEC and the AG’s Office. The panelists will also highlight some of the exciting cases they have handled. This program will benefit both junior and more experienced environmental attorneys, as it will provide helpful background on environmental enforcement processes and offer a glimpse into the sophisticated yet not well-known work of DEC’s Division of Law Enforcement.


The program is sponsored by the Enforcement and Compliance Committee of the Environmental and Energy Law Section of the New York State Bar Association. The program will be moderated by Karen Mintzer, Co-Chair of the Committee and a founder of Mintzer Mauch PLLC.


The other Co-Chairs of the Enforcement and Compliance Committee are Matthew J. Sinkman, Counsel at Gibbons P.C.; and Susan E. Amron, General Counsel of the New York City Department of City Planning.
