Boutique Environmental Law Practice, Bick Law Group, Launches in Newport Beach

Respected environmental attorney Kimberly Bick leverages global law firm experience to lead new firm

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif.--()--Bick Law Group, a new firm focused on environmental law, officially launched today in Newport Beach, bringing together three respected attorneys with many years of experience at top-tier global law firms. Under the leadership of founding partner Kimberly L. Bick, the firm is committed to providing clients with high-level environmental counsel at affordable prices in a boutique legal setting.

Under the environmental legal umbrella, transactional, compliance, enforcement, regulatory and litigation matters all are handled by Bick Law Group. The firm also handles select general legal matters.

Joining Bick at the new firm are Gabriel Padilla, an environmental law specialist formerly with Bingham McCutchen and Arnold & Porter, and James Sabovich, formerly with Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, where he was Deputy Co-Chair of the Environmental Litigation and Mass Tort Practice Group and a member of the Litigation Practice Group and Transnational Litigation and Foreign Judgments Practice Group. Padilla and Sabovich each have more than a decade of experience in complex environmental and general litigation matters, including mass tort and resource damages litigation in the United States and abroad, CERCLA cost recovery litigation, Proposition 65 litigation and NEPA/CEQA litigation.

Throughout her career, Bick has combined her knowledge and passion in environmental science with her legal prowess to provide clients with well-respected and sought-after legal counsel in compliance with complex environmental regulations and strategic representation in Superfund sites and corporate transactions. Bick has focused exclusively on environmental law since 1990, following her earlier career as an environmental engineer in the aerospace industry. Bick holds a bachelor’s degree in environmental earth sciences, a master’s degree in civil engineering and a juris doctor, all from Stanford University, where she graduated with distinction.
