Crowell & Moring's chemicals team helps companies to bring their chemical products to market and keep them there. We also work closely with our clients to anticipate, prepare for, and respond to challenges and threats to the chemistries they rely on.

Our chemicals team includes lawyers with technical backgrounds and provides broad-based and industry-focused assistance to leading multinational companies, smaller chemical companies, trade associations, and testing consortia with operations and interests in North America, Europe, Asia, and Australasia. We provide practical advice at every stage of a chemical product's lifespan, from intellectual property and risk management issues that arise during a product's development to regulatory approvals required to bring a product to market, as well as advising companies about ongoing compliance issues and defending companies and chemical products against regulatory challenges, litigation, and activist-driven campaigns.

Our chemicals team includes former government regulators and other practitioners with decades of experience in the regulation of chemical products. We regularly represent clients before the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and other federal and state regulatory agencies, including California's Department of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) and California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA).

Three pillars support the success of our chemicals practice: (1) we listen to our clients, strive to understand their objectives and needs, and work closely with them, as partners; (2) we have a deep and sophisticated understanding of the laws and regulations that impact the chemicals industry; and (3) we have built longstanding, trusting relationships with the relevant regulators over 30 years of practice.
