December 22, 2011

Steven C. Nadeau, a Partner and Chair of Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP’s Environmental Law Department, has been named the 2011 Outstanding Environmental Professional of the Year for Michigan by the Michigan Association of Environmental Professionals (MAEP).

“MAEP is pleased to honor Steve Nadeau this year,” said Mary Miller, President of MAEP. “His long-standing work in educating both the regulated community and regulators on the merits of utilizing risk-based solutions has had a significant favorable impact on national sediment policy. In addition, his role as Founder and Coordinating Director of the Sediment Management Work Group since 1998 has been important to the evolution of national contaminated sediment policy. Steve’s remediation projects in the state of Michigan under CERCLA (Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act) and Part 201 (of the Environmental Remediation of the Michigan Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act) also have been important. We appreciate all Steve has done to advance our profession.”

Nadeau’s federal and state Superfund practice has included precedent-setting accomplishments for his clients in the context of contaminated sediment management, PCB remediation and lender liability. He has been named a Best Lawyer since 1991 and in 2010 was named Environmental Lawyer of the Year in Detroit by Best Lawyers in America. Nadeau also has been listed in Michigan Super Lawyers since 2006 and on the DBusiness list of “Top Lawyers” from 2010 to 2012.

Nadeau earned a J.D., cum laude, from Boston College Law School and an A.B., magna cum laude, from Boston College.
