Adam H. Cutler of Fox Rothschild Receives Chester Environmental Partnership Outstanding Service Award

November 7, 2012 – Press Releases

Adam H. Cutler, counsel at Fox Rothschild LLP, has received the Chester Environmental Partnership Outstanding Service Award in recognition of his contributions and dedication to the organization.

The Chester Environmental Partnership (CEP) is a nonprofit organization working to improve the environmental and economic conditions in the City of Chester, while attracting positive economic development, sustainable growth and economic opportunities for its residents. The organization also aims to reduce emissions and negative environmental exposures to citizens by developing collaborative partnerships with community stakeholders, including local business and industry and local, state, and federal governmental agencies.

Cutler first became involved with CEP in September 2008 as outside legal counsel on environmental issues, and in 2009 helped write a successful grant proposal for the Environmental Protection Agency’s highly competitive CARE (Community Action for a Renewed Environment) Grant that provided CEP with funding to strengthen itself as an organization and work with the Chester community to evaluate and reach consensus on the critical environmental issues facing Chester residents. From February to April 2012 Cutler served as CEP’s interim Executive Director. He has also counseled several environmental justice communities throughout Southeastern Pennsylvania on issues impacting environmental permitting, land use, public participation, and public health.

With in-depth experience in policy work and environmental law, Cutler represents many clients in highly complex litigation and regulatory matters. He frequently advises on environmental compliance and transactional matters, and counsels on environmental risk communication and community relations as well as environmental policy issues.

Cutler is a member of the Delaware Valley Environmental American Inn of Court. In 2011, he was named to the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Council’s Environmental Justice Work Group and Long Range Plan Committee, and was appointed to Pennsylvania’s Environmental Justice Advisory Board by Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection Secretary, Michael Krancer. He earned his J.D. and his B.S. from University of Pennsylvania.
