MG+M congratulates Max Swetman on his inclusion in the New Orleans CityBusiness 2018 Leadership in Law class. This is Max’s third time being honored by New Orleans CityBusiness, having previously been named to the Leadership in Law list in 2011 and 2012.
The Leadership in the Law list recognizes 50 outstanding legal professionals whose successes in law and contributions to the community have set the pace for the legal community in New Orleans and beyond. Along with firm-associated honorees, the list also includes educators, in-house counsel, and court-associated individuals.
Max Swetman has been a partner since 2015. He has risen to become one of the nation’s foremost authorities on environmental studies and law, showing an incredible passion for his work. Max’s specialized training and experience allow him to provide a unique and immediate perspective to urgent environmental and health legal problems that usually require extensive initial outside expert consultation. In addition to a law degree, Max holds a master’s degree in environmental science and policy, and a master’s of public health degree in epidemiology. He frequently handles litigation and regulatory compliance counseling concerning a wide range of environmental laws on behalf of his clients, and is a frequent speaker at conferences around the world on environmental and health topics.
The May 25 issue of New Orleans CityBusiness will highlight all 50 outstanding lawyers.
