Jennifer’s practice includes transactional and regulatory compliance as well as litigation. On the transactional side, she advises purchasers, sellers, landlords, and tenants of properties with hazardous substance and petroleum contamination, assisting them in conducting due diligence, negotiating cleanup responsibility, and in allocating environmental risk both by contract and through environmental insurance.

In 2011 and 2012, the firm received the Acquisition International Legal Award for “US Environmental Law Firm of the Year.” The awards celebrate excellence and reward firms, teams and individuals for their contribution to client service, innovation and commitment to quality.

Post-acquisition, her work includes overseeing the remediation of such properties and allocating responsibility and costs of cleanup, while working with numerous parties, including responsible third parties and their attorneys, environmental consultants, and state environmental agencies. She also counsels borrowers in connection with financing and refinancing contaminated properties, and has advised secured lenders regarding liability under both state and federal law. Jennifer’s compliance work includes advising clients on regulatory compliance with state and federal environmental laws and regulations, with an emphasis on building materials such as lead-based paint and asbestos. 

On the litigation side, Jennifer's work has included matters involving state and federal cost-recovery actions and contract disputes, including participation in the defense of a potentially responsible party in a CERCLA cost recovery action brought by the federal government.  

Jennifer currently serves as a member of the firm’s Central Training Committee.
