Amy E. Romig Who We Are
 

Amy E. Romig, Partner Back to Attorney List
   

The focus of Amy Romig’s practice is environmental and natural resource counseling and the Indiana Orders and Procedures Act (“AOPA”).  She regularly represents clients in permitting, enforcement actions, and other adversarial proceedings before the Indiana Office of Environmental Adjudication and other administrative tribunals.


Amy has experience in representing environmental clients in administrative, trial, and appellate forums.  For example, in Board of Com’rs of LaPorte County v. Great Lakes Transfer, LLC, 888 N.E.2d 784 (Ind. Ct. App. 2008) Amy successfully defended a solid waste processing facility permit through administrative, judicial review, and appellate proceedings resulting in a favorable appellate opinion interpreting many AOPA issues.

 

Amy counsels clients on a broad variety of air, water, solid waste, underground storage tank, natural resource, and other environmental issues.  She assists clients with cleanups performed under Indiana’s Voluntary Cleanup and other cleanup programs.  Amy’s litigation successes include obtaining class certification on behalf of owners of property impacted by ethanol emissions from a distillery and resultant mold growth. 

 

Amy’s bar association contributions include serving in all executive council positions of the Indiana State Bar Association Environmental Section and the Indianapolis Bar Association Environmental Section.  Amy was also selected to participate in the Indianapolis Bar Association Leader Series (2006-2007), and was named as one of only ten finalists in the law for the Indy's Best and Brightest in 2011.

 

Amy obtained a B.S., with highest honors, in Chemical Engineering in 1995 from J.B. Speed Scientific School, University of Louisville.  She was an Engineering Co-op Student at Colgate-Palmolive if Jeffersonville, Indiana and at E.I. DuPont de Nemours in Old Hickory, Tennessee.  Amy was first in her Chemical Engineering Class, was a member of the Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honors Society, and received both the Speed School Outstanding Freshman Award and the AIChE Outstanding Sophomore Award. 


Amy graduated, magna cum laude, from Indiana University Bloomington - Maurer School of Law in 2000 with a joint M.S. degree in Environmental Sciences from the Indiana University School of Public and Environmental Affairs with a specialized concentration in Hazardous Materials.  Amy joined the firm in 2000 as an associate and was made a partner in 2009.
