Here We Grow Again!

KMCL is pleased to announce the addition of more top talent to our ranks—our newest member, Chris Williams, joined the firm as a Partner in our Birmingham office today. Chris comes to us from a major law firm where he focused his practice on environmental litigation, regulatory compliance, and environmental issues in business transactions. Chris has been practicing environmental law since 2004 and was an environmental consultant for several years prior to attending the University of Alabama School of Law. 

Over the course of his career, Chris has worked with numerous clients to solve environmental problems, including pipeline and natural resource companies, real estate developers, manufacturers, landfill owners, and local governments.  Chris’s litigation experience includes defending clients in land use disputes and toxic torts, citizen suits, and EPA and state administrative actions. He also helps clients prevent litigation when advising them on the environmental risks and opportunities associated with a real estate deal or other business transaction, obtaining and complying with required permits, and developing the infrastructure and procedures needed to ensure continued compliance.

Chris is recognized as a leading attorney in environmental law by Chambers and Partners and is a Fellow of the American College of Environmental Lawyers. He has served as the Chair of the Environmental Law Section of the Alabama State Bar and on the boards of the Green Resource Center for Alabama, Birmingham Volunteer Lawyer Program, and Cahaba River Society. Welcome aboard Chris!
