When a national construction and industrial distribution company became the target of an enforcement initiative alleging violations of certain environmental regulations, it turned to VLP attorney Lisa Stone, Chair of our firm’s Energy, Natural Resources and Environmental Practice Group, to find the right solution.

Lisa partnered with the client to develop a plan to achieve the client’s objective, which prioritized resolving the matter amicably and quietly over a scorched earth defense. Armed with facts developed through an internal investigation that was coordinated by VLP, Lisa guided the client through a strategy for responding to the regulatory agency’s concerns.

The Outcome: The matter was settled quickly.

“VLP provides top quality, cost-effective legal counsel. I first worked with Lisa when she was at a large national law firm that staffed our projects with large teams of lawyers. With VLP, I am pleased to receive sophisticated legal services without the layers of staffing. VLP was able to accomplish with one attorney what a large law firm would have done with three or more. I recommend Lisa and VLP’s Energy, Natural Resources & Environmental practice to any client looking for superior, dedicated outside counsel.”
