Air Quality Enforcement Action

Air Quality Enforcement Action

Louis Rose, Jeffrey Wechsler, and Lara Katz defended a leading multi-national energy company in an enforcement action brought by the New Mexico Environment Department in district court for violations of the New Mexico Air Quality Act.  The company faced allegations of multiple violations at its natural gas processing plant as well as potential penalties in excess of $100 million.   Through the litigation efforts of our attorneys, the case was developed into a posture that was appropriate for mediation.  Mr. Rose, Mr. Wechsler, and Ms. Katz were able to negotiate a settlement of all claims on favorable terms to the company.
