Steve Solow, head of the White Collar, Investigations and Compliance practice in the firm's Washington, DC office, was quoted in a Bloomberg Environment article regarding a recent memo on environmental enforcement priorities issued by Jeff Wood, the Acting Assistant Attorney General in charge of DOJ's Environment and Natural Resources Division. Steve noted that the memo encourages voluntary disclosures, but does not disregard traditional enforcement. He stated, "In some ways, while trying to say, 'We want you to come in, resolve things informally,' it is not an abandonment by any means of the traditional hierarchy of enforcement, from administrative enforcement to civil judicial and ultimately criminal prosecution."
