Energy, Environment & Natural Resources Experience

Mr. Sussman is chair of the firm’s Environmental Practice Group. He counsels clients on all aspects of environmental law with particular emphasis on air and water pollution, waste management, Brownfields remediation, and chemical regulation.

A substantial part of Mr. Sussman’s practice involves advising clients on site remediation issues and Brownfields redevelopment. This work includes serving as outside environmental counsel in connection with the remediation and redevelopment of the former Remington Park manufacturing facility in Bridgeport, Connecticut, a 422 acre industrial site subject to a RCRA corrective action order. Mr. Sussman also successfully led a team which obtained only the second final cleanup approval ever issued by Connecticut for a RCRA-permitted site.

Mr. Sussman has extensive experience in representing energy companies on environmental matters. He served as lead environmental counsel in the development and permitting of a variety of power plants, including: Connecticut’s largest merchant power plant - a 792 megawatt, gas-fired combustion turbine project; a 180 megawatt circulating fluidized bed coal cogeneration plant; four waste-to-energy plants; modifications to Connecticut’s largest coal electric generating station; and a number of other smaller power plants.

Prior to entering private practice, Mr. Sussman served in the Land and Natural Resources Division of the U.S. Justice Department as a trial attorney and at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as a water quality engineer. In addition to his administrative and environmental counseling practice, Mr. Sussman participates in and supervises environmental litigation matters.
