Sustainability in the Trump Era: Corporate, Global, and Enforcement Perspectives
By Tom Mounteer
To commemorate Earth Day, Paul Hastings LLP hosted a panel discussion on April 18, 2017, featuring three prominent attorneys with extensive and diverse experience in environmental counseling and litigation. The panelists reflected on the transition to the Trump Administration, and what it might mean for long-standing issues of federalism, globalization, private environmental governance, and enforcement and compliance. Below, we present a transcript of the discussion, which has been edited for style, clarity, and space considerations.
