Jeffrey M. Casaletto to Speak at 2011 Lehigh Valley Energy and Environment Conference and Expo
Bridgewater, NJ (September 29, 2011) – Jeffrey M. Casaletto, an associate of Norris McLaughlin, P.A., will speak at the Lehigh Valley Energy and Environment Conference and Expo (LVEEC) on October 13, 2011, at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Casaletto will act as moderator for the session “Reducing Waste in the Workplace,” and will speak to the legal aspects of waste management strategy at the same presentation. Casaletto’s fellow presenters include representatives from Northampton County, City of Bethlehem, and Sustainable Waste Systems.
“Small businesses should be aware of the legal implications of their waste management plans, and will benefit from not only reducing their waste, but reducing it in the most effective and efficient way possible,” explained Casaletto.
LVEEC is the Lehigh Valley’s preeminent environmental event for businesses. The event serves to inform the small-business community of ways to embrace sustainability and integrate it into an overall business strategy helping them compete in a world ever more influenced by big businesses. Presentations will provide practical information on exactly what small business need to do, what it means to their bottom line, and what it takes to do business from this day forward. Decision makers responsible for profits and planning, including business owners, financial personnel, and municipal decision makers and planners, are encouraged to attend.
Casaletto represents and counsels clients in a wide range of industries, including commercial and residential developers, chemical and industrial manufacturers, and commercial business owners. He maintains a result-oriented approach to each environmental issue as a means of achieving a client’s goals and objectives. He assists clients in resolving issues related to site remediation, due diligence, solid and hazardous waste disposal, regulatory compliance, permitting, Brownfields redevelopment, and cleanup cost recovery.
The practice of environmental law often involves unique issues that require the expertise and advice of technical consultants. Casaletto’s environmental engineering background enables him to better communicate and problem solve with environmental consultants, and to apply a team approach to all issues, legal and technical. His ability to understand the technical aspects of his environmental matters helps clients to more efficiently resolve their environmental issues.
Casaletto has experience handling matters involving CERCLA, RCRA, EPCRA, and OPA. He has negotiated removal orders, EPCRA/OPA settlements, and cost recovery for removal and remedial actions.
Prior to joining Norris McLaughlin, Casaletto was Assistant Regional Counsel, and the 2002 Michael F. Vaccaro Honors Fellowship Attorney, at the U.S. EPA Region III where he focused on Superfund matters. Before that, he was a judiciary law clerk for the Honorable Vincent LeBlon and the Honorable Dennis V. Nieves in Middlesex County, New Jersey. While attending law school, he was a legal intern at the Pace Environmental Litigation Clinic, and for the Environmental Defense Section of the U.S. Department of Justice, Environment and Natural Resources Division.
Casaletto served as an elected councilman for the Borough of Stockton, New Jersey. During his term of service, he was also appointed by Mayor Stephen Giocondo to the Stockton Planning Board as Council Liaison and to several committees for the community of Stockton, including finance, personnel, and water and sewer.
Casaletto earned his J.D., cum laude, from Pace Law School in 2001. He earned his B.S. in Civil Engineering and his M. Eng. in Environmental Engineering from Pennsylvania State University in 1996 and 1998, respectively.
