The former chief of the Justice Department’s environmental crimes office has started a new law firm.

Steven Solow’s new Washington-based firm — Solow PLLC — will handle environmental cases in the United States and internationally. The new law shop will also tackle other matters like white-collar defense, internal investigations and corporate compliance.

In a press release, Solow said he looks forward to continuing his work as a “problem solver” for clients.


“There are situations where an organization or individual needs the services of a large firm and everything that goes along with it, but clients often come to me seeking specific legal analysis and strategic guidance,” Solow said. “They need someone who knows where to put the ‘x’ in a complex equation. I look forward to continuing in the role of problem solver that has been the guiding principle of my work since I was an organized crime prosecutor.”
