The practice of environmental law is complex and ever changing. Federal, state and local governments, manufacturers, developers, commercial financiers, academic institutions, health care facilities and homeowners all must navigate the rules, regulations and laws put in place or enforced by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA), the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP), other federal and state agencies and municipal regulatory boards.
Chris Myhrum has spent his entire legal career focused on the practice of environmental law. After starting the Environmental Law Practice Group at Bulkley Richardson and Gelinas, a law firm based in Springfield, Massachusetts, he later left to start his own practice in January 2011. Today, Chris focuses on the wide range of environmental matters involving all aspects of environmental law affecting businesses, municipalities and individuals.
“The professional challenge of working in a complex and changing area of law and helping people resolve disputes and accomplish goals is enormously satisfying.”
