Shook attorneys Vanessa Dittman, James Thompson and Tom Grever will be presenting for the Midwest Environmental Compliance Conference in Kansas City, Missouri, April 11-12, 2018. Shook is a Silver Sponsor for the event, which takes a fresh, regional approach to the increasingly difficult task of environmental compliance, permitting, enforcement and other critical environmental issues that affect Midwest facilities and institutions. Representatives from several government agencies will be attending, including representatives from the Iowa and Missouri departments of Natural Resources, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Region 7 and the Kansas Department of Health and Environment, among other agencies.

Dittman will be presenting “The Worst Plant: A Virtual Tour and Legal Implications.” The presentation will guide the audience through a "virtual tour of the 'worst plant' in the world using digital renderings or real-world compliance issues."

Thompson's presentation, a legal ethics CLE, is titled “Staying Out of Trouble in Transactions.”

Grever is participating in a panel titled “State and Federal Enforcement Priorities.”
