Spencer Fane attorney John Watson recently authored an article published in Law360 about why and how companies will have to adapt to the certainty of aggressive carbon reduction goals set by governmental authorities and increased regulation at the international, federal, state, and local levels.
In his article, Cos. Can Bet On More Stringent Climate Regs At Every Level, John outlined many of the federal, state, and local plans that ensure more stringent regulation.
John shares, “Coming full circle, then: We can expect more regulation, more restrictions on carbon emissions, and more attention to enhanced best management practices that will be policed with a magnifying glass by regulatory agencies.”
At Spencer Fane, John leverages his in-depth commercial trial and litigation knowledge to understand clients’ needs and goals and serves as a formidable advocate on their behalf. As both a defense trial attorney and counselor, John represents clients in a variety of complex commercial cases, including public land and natural resources law, mining, oil and gas, wildlife, toxic tort, Superfund, and air, water, and environmental waste cases.
