With a mutual interest in expanding each firm's capabilities and offerings to its clients, Phylmar Group and Earth and Water (E&W) Group have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to provide added services to their respective clients.

The MOU allows Phylmar clients to enjoy a broader array of services including environmental consulting and law firm support as well as having a presence in Washington D.C.

"We are thrilled to have a Memorandum of Understanding in place with Earth and Water Group; their broad range of environmental regulatory and legal expertise will be an absolute asset for our members," says The Phylmar Group Founder and Managing Principal Mark Katchen.

The MOU was signed by Mark Katchen and Doug Parker, a former senior EPA enforcement official and current President of Earth & Water Group. E&W's background in crisis mitigation, environmental compliance, and criminal environmental investigation are key firm assets.  In addition, E&W principals have extensive national and international regulatory and legislative tracking and advocacy experience.  

In July 2016, Phylmar Group released a video interview with Mark Katchen and Doug Parker discussing the Department of Justice's interest in EHS related prosecutorial investigations. To watch the video, visit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dG5Kq90fDxY.
