Speaker Bios:

John Irving's practice focuses on criminal and civil environmental enforcement matters, internal investigations, and ensuring effective corporate compliance programs, utilizing skills honed from his 24 years of experience at the Department of Justice, on Capitol Hill, in private practice, and at EPA. Prior to joining Earth & Water Law, he served as Deputy Assistant Administrator in U.S. EPAʼs Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance (OECA), which coordinates and oversees nationwide compliance efforts and administrative, civil, and criminal  environmental investigations under the CleanWater Act, Clean Air Act, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, and other environmental statutes.

John Sheehan has practiced at the forefront of environmental law for over thirty years, with a particular focus on the energy and natural resource sectors.  Sheehan began his practice in environmental law at the United States Department of Justice in the Environment & Natural Resources Division where he served as lead trial counsel for trial teams in precedent setting litigation on behalf of the United States under the key environmental statutes. After 13 years at DOJ he returned to private practice and was part of a team of lawyers representing the State of Florida in the litigation arising out of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster.  His practice now includes environmental litigation, regulatory enforcement actions, and transactional counseling related to key environmental statutes.
