CANONSBURG, Pa. – Ken Komoroski has joined Steptoe & Johnson’s team of 15 environmental lawyers and professionals. He will practice from the firm’s Southpointe office, located near Canonsburg, as well as its Pittsburgh office which opens later this month. Komoroski has more than 30 years of experience in environmental and energy law in private practice as well as with international law firms. He is also an environmental engineer with the technical know-how to help find the right solutions for his clients.

“Ken has many years of diverse experience in environmental and energy law. He adds strength to an environmental team that is already working hard to solve problems for clients in and out of the courtroom,” said Steptoe & Johnson CEO Christopher L. Slaughter. “Ken understands the law and, as an engineer, he also understands what his clients experience from an operational perspective.”

Komoroski represents clients in the steel, chemical, oil and natural gas, and alternative energy industries in matters concerning air, water, brownfields, Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and others. He develops solutions for energy producers and suppliers facing delays of major projects resulting from enforcement actions by environmental agencies.

Prior to beginning his legal career, he worked for a Fortune 100 company as an environmental engineer, supervisor, and regulatory expert. Komoroski was presidentially appointed as a federal commissioner for the Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO), a position he held for a decade, and ultimately became ORSANCO chairman.
