Among the clients who use Somach Simmons & Dunn for air quality counseling and defense is one of the world’s largest shipping operators—a company responsible for California’s ports in Long Beach, Oakland, San Diego, Sacramento, and Stockton.
Large trucking companies and retailers that require refrigerated trucking, such as grocery store chains, also rely on the Somach Simmons & Dunn air quality team for compliance and defense. Additionally, retailers that sell cosmetics, car waxes, and a host of other consumer goods that use aerosols or whose products evaporate and discharge volatile organic compounds (VOCs) also rely on Somach Simmons & Dunn’s lawyers.
An important advantage that Somach Simmons & Dunn’s air quality clients have on their side is the firm’s experience dealing with the California Air Resources Board and the 35 local agencies that govern the state’s air quality. This experience has translated into strong relationships within the various agencies and is essential to quickly finding areas of agreement between clients and the agencies that issue violations.
