Leefatt, Kimberly E.

Combining diligence and a poised approach, Kimberly Leefatt’s environmental practice is informed by multifaceted experience spanning litigation and transactional matters as well as government investigations.

While there, she represented clients in federal civil litigation and during federal government criminal investigations before the U.S. EPA and U.S. Department of Justice involving the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act; Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act; and the Clean Air Act.
