Nielsen V. Lewis, a partner at the Princeton law firm of Hill Wallack LLP, has authored two articles concerning No Further Action ("NFA") letters of the New Jersey DEP and "innocent purchaser" defenses under the N.J. Spill Act designed to promote the acquisition and redevelopment of previously-contaminated properties by innocent developers. The first article, "Municipalities and Brownfield-Contaminated Properties," appeared in New Jersey Lawyer Magazine, the magazine of the New Jersey State Bar Association. The second, "Proceed With Caution: Pitfalls of Relying On A No Further Action Letter," was published in the New Jersey Law Journal. Requests for reprints, or inquiries concerning the articles or the firm's Environmental Practice Group, may be directed to Mr. Lewis at (609) 734-6308 or nvl@hillwallack.com.

Mr. Lewis was a featured panelist at the recent New Jersey Builder’s Association Atlantic Builders Conference Seminar Panel, “When Can You Rely on an NFA Letter?”. His informative presentation explained the cleanup liability protection afforded by NFA letters, limitations on reliance on NFA letters for such protection, and the critical importance of exercising environmental due diligence before closing.

Partner-in-charge of Hill Wallack LLP’s Environmental Law Practice Group, Mr. Lewis counsels and represents corporations, public entities and individuals on a wide range of environmental and land use matters, including local development applications; environmental permitting; regulatory compliance; and environmental litigation, including complex CERCLA (Superfund), RCRA and New Jersey Spill Act disputes. A frequent lecturer and writer on environmental and insurance topics, he is a past Chair of the NJSBA’s Insurance Law Section, a member of its Environmental Law and Dispute Resolution Sections, and a Master of the Justice Stewart G. Pollock Environmental American Inn of Court. Mr. Lewis is admitted to the Superior Court Roster of Court-Approved Mediators.

Mr. Lewis received his undergraduate degree from Princeton University and his law degree from the University of Michigan Law School. He is admitted to practice in New Jersey, the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey and the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.

Hill Wallack LLP, along with Michael P. Turner, veteran public affairs professional, today announced the formation of Government Process Solutions, LLC (GPS). Together with Hill Wallack LLP's leading regulatory and government procurement attorneys, GPS, a full service government advocacy firm, will provide crisis communications, grassroots and press communication strategies and an expanded range of regulatory guidance.

“The launch of GPS presents an exciting opportunity to work with three of New Jersey’s most talented attorneys on some of our state’s most important public issues,” said Michael Turner, who will serve as Managing Principal of GPS. “With this new venture, we have combined distinct professional skill sets that positions GPS well in the new era of government relations.”

GPS will provide clients with unmatched strategic guidance and advocacy for their most difficult public affairs challenges. The firm’s bipartisan professionals combine over 90 years of experience in government, law and business development to provide unique and creative solutions to any government problem.

“Michael Turner’s experience, proven success and leadership give GPS’s clients a tremendous business advantage,” said Paul Josephson, GPS principal and partner in charge of the Regulatory and Government Affairs Practice Group at Hill Wallack LLP. “In today's world, clients who interact with any level of government must make their case not only in the court of law, but also in the court of public opinion. Our clients see the need to be proactive and engage the public and media directly. The marriage of legal and communications strategy is unique and something our clients and government agencies with whom we interface appreciate.”

Already GPS has been retained by some of the state’s business leaders for an array of development, procurement, media relations and government affairs services. The firm will be temporarily located adjacent to Hill Wallack's Princeton, New Jersey office until its permanent quarters at 101 South Warren Street, Trenton, are completed in October.

He has conducted some of the most high-profile and successful public affairs and crisis communications programs in the Northeast – for clients including: Meadowlands Xanadu, The Passaic River Restoration Project and Parsons Corporation as well as the 2005 Northeast Physicians’ March on Washington, D.C. Mr. Turner specializes in organizing broad-based coalitions of key industry, transportation, environmental, labor and public interest groups to support initiatives on the regional, state and local level.

Mr. Josephson has been listed in the top tier of PoliticsNJ.com's list of most influential attorneys in New Jersey since 2002, and recognized for distinguished legislative service by the New Jersey State Bar Association.

Mr. Josephson served as Chief Counsel to the Governor and as Chief of Authorities, representing the Governor on more than 50 bi-state and state authorities including the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, New Jersey Transit, the Casino Control Commission, the State Ethics Commission and the State House Commission. He later served as Assistant Attorney General and Director of the Division of Law within the New Jersey Office of the Attorney General. In that capacity, he managed a 550-attorney division responsible for all civil representation of the State of New Jersey.

Ms. Cannon brings 18 years experience in the areas of public procurement, administrative law and regulatory compliance and has represented clients before a myriad of state administrative agencies including Treasury, Labor and Environmental Protection. Ms. Cannon has spent her career assisting clients in all aspects of public procurement disputes and issues at the state and local levels, advising clients in all stages of the procurement process from challenging bid specifications to bid protest and post bid compliance.

He served as the Assistant Director of the Office of Administrative Law, and as Assistant to the Director of the Division of Purchase and Property where he was responsible for developing a program for assuring due process in the State's bidding process, and oversaw the State vendor compliance and complaint system. In that later capacity, he also served as hearing officer in numerous bid protests, many of which matters form the foundation of contemporary rules relating to bid compliance and appearance of impropriety standards.

He also worked for the Legislature’s non-partisan Office of Fiscal Affairs, where he conducted performance and compliance audits of State programs including the Division of Pensions, the Division of Building and Construction, the Department of Civil Service, and the Educational Financing Authority.
