Brian M. Ledger is a partner working out of the Los Angeles and San Diego offices, where his practice focuses on Environmental and Toxic Tort Law and he serves as chair of the Proposition 65 subgroup. Following receipt of a B.S. degree, magna cum laude, in Environmental Science, Mr. Ledger completed a Master’s degree program in Environmental and Occupational Health Science at UCLA, where he received highest honors in Toxicology and in Epidemiology. Before attending law school, Mr. Ledger worked as an environmental consultant and for the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) as an industrial hygiene compliance officer inspecting work places for potential chemical exposure violations.
Mr. Ledger’s law practice has focused on environmental and toxic tort litigation, Proposition 65, and regulatory compliance. His experience encompasses a broad range of environmental laws, including hazardous substances laws (e.g., CERCLA and RCRA), the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, Underground Storage Tank laws, Proposition 65, the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act, Occupational Safety and Health laws, Land Use law, common law toxic tort actions, and class actions involving exposure allegations. Mr. Ledger also counsels clients through environmental investigations and remediations to help them to achieve cost-effective and timely closures with the regulatory agencies.
Mr. Ledger has tried multiple complex environmental and toxic tort cases to verdict with very favorable results. He serves as national counsel for several companies, and is admitted to practice in seven states, including California.
Growing up in a gritty, blue-collar town in Pennsylvania, Mr. Ledger developed a work ethic that enabled him to accomplish unexpected academic and career goals, while never losing sight of his working-class beginnings and connections. Mr. Ledger continues to bring this work ethic to bear in service to his clients. He enjoys international travel, classical literature and history, rock and jazz, NFL and NBA, and engaging with his wife and three kids of vastly disparate ages.
