Laura Whiting, a partner in Gardere’s environmental practice group, brings to the table over 27 years of experience assisting clients with all aspects of compliance and permitting for heavily regulated industries and real estate developments. She focuses her practice on state and federal enforcement and compliance counseling under the Clean Air Act, RCRA, CERCLA, Clean Water Act, incident investigations, regulatory advocacy, and product stewardship requirements, as well as the ongoing need to conduct thorough due diligence and cost-effective remediation and cost recovery.

Laura is committed to achieving clients' goals through leadership, teamwork, advocacy and precise documentation, particularly in the environmental and process safety areas for chemical manufacturing, oil and gas production, pipeline, airline and real estate clients. She is a trusted advisor, who is adept at communicating effectively at all levels of the client organization and with outside stakeholders.

Prior to joining Gardere, Laura held the position of senior counsel at Occidental Chemical Corp. for 11 years, where she was the primary counsel responsible for environmental, health, safety, process safety, product stewardship, quality assurance and security functions (HESS). Additionally, along with prior law firm experience, Laura served for four years as an assistant regional counsel/enforcement attorney for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 6 in Dallas. 

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
