In speaking with the publication, Eric Murdock, head of the firm’s administrative law team, emphasized the breadth and depth of the department’s capabilities. "One of the things that we're proud of is the fact that we have a deep bench across the full spectrum of the substantive areas of environmental law. Although we have people in different locations, we function cohesively as a team.”
