(Philadelphia, March 24, 2021)—FisherBroyles, LLP is pleased to announce it has expanded its Environmental, Health and Safety group with the arrival of Christopher W. Boyle who joins the Firm as a Partner in Philadelphia.

Christopher joins the firm from Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP where he was Chair of their Environment and Energy Practice Group.

He tailors environmental due diligence for single-site property deals, private equity platforms, multimillion-dollar brownfields developments and multibillion-dollar international manufacturing transactions.

Christopher also counsels clients on allocation of business risks, deal structures, post-closure environmental compliance and crisis management. He also uses his detailed knowledge of potential societal impacts to develop community relations plans that provide balanced, real-world communications to the public.

Christopher is an active member of the Philadelphia Bar Association and is a Past Chair of its Environmental Law Committee. He is also a member of the Pennsylvania and the New Jersey Bar Associations and a member of the American Society for Testing and Materials Committee E-50 on Environmental Assessments.
