Leading environmental lawyer Kegan Brown joins Lowenstein Sandler

Kegan Brown has joined Lowenstein Sandler as a partner in the Environmental Law & Litigation Group in New Jersey and New York, the firm recently announced.

Brown represents clients throughout the full lifecycle of complex environmental and products liability litigations and regulatory matters, particularly involving per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS, or natural resource damages.

Brown joins from Latham & Watkins.

“Kegan is a pioneer in the quickly evolving area of ‘forever chemical’ contamination matters. He led the successful defense in the first two natural resource damage actions to ever go to trial in New Jersey and has litigated numerous similar federal cases on behalf of some of the world’s biggest corporations. We are thrilled he has chosen to join Lowenstein,” Michael Lichtenstein, chair of Lowenstein’s Environmental Law & Litigation Group said.

“Lowenstein’s environmental group not only has a stellar reputation, but it is in true growth mode,” Brown said.

Brown’s practice focuses on complex environmental, products liability and toxic tort litigations; environmental regulatory matters, including Superfund and state-equivalent programs; and natural resource damage claims.

Brown advises on environmental issues in transactions across a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, retail and consumer products, chemical, pulp and paper, and oil and gas, frequently partnering with internal stakeholders to lead investigations that further their environmental, social & governance sustainability goals. Brown helps clients develop and implement effective strategies for permitting, investigation and remediation, unilateral administrative orders under Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act or state law, as well as government subpoenas, information requests and reporting requirements; he also advises buyers, sellers, lenders and underwriters on environmental issues in mergers, acquisitions and financing transactions.

Lowenstein Sandler is a national law firm with over 350 lawyers based in New Jersey, New York, California, Utah and Washington, D.C.
