Howland served at USEPA for 28 years, as a senior assistant regional counsel in Region 3 and, most recently, as a senior advisor to OECA working on Superfund Taskforce implementation. He advises clients on compliance with environmental laws generally, with a focus on real estate and other commercial transactions and related potential liabilities under CERCLA, RCRA, and state law counterparts. Howland works with energy and other developers advancing projects on environmentally impaired land and helps clients to comply with risk management, spill, and emergency response planning laws. He frequently lectures on environmental and energy law, having taught courses at the University of Pennsylvania Law School and Villanova University Charles Widger School of Law. Howland was appointed to the Fulbright Specialist Program Roster for a three-year term beginning August 2017.
