Aaron H. Goldberg

Beveridge & Diamond
Washington, DC, USA

Aaron Goldberg focuses on regulatory issues associated with hazardous wastes and consumer/industrial products.  He started his career as a consultant to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, helping to develop hazardous waste rules under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act.  After a time in the White House Office of Management and Budget, he joined Beveridge & Diamond, where he has continued to concentrate on hazardous waste issues at the federal, state, and international levels.

Because much of Aaron’s hazardous waste work has related to handling of used products, he has also become involved with other product regulatory issues.  For example, he works on U.S. and international rules for transport of hazardous materials or dangerous goods, as well as on rules for preventing diversion of chemicals to production of chemical weapons or illegal drugs.

Aaron represents companies and trade associations in a variety of industries, including chemicals, electronics, retail, recycling, consumer products, petroleum, pharmaceuticals, steel, and mining. He provides a full range of services, from participating in development of new laws/rules to counseling on compliance, and from applying for permits/variances to responding to enforcement actions.

In addition to being an attorney, Aaron has a graduate degree in chemistry and extensive training/experience in economics. His varied background enables him to serve as a particularly effective bridge between engineers, business managers, attorneys, consultants, and regulators.
