Chattanooga law firm Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C. welcomed Michael C. Mallen, an attorney who brings decades of experience in workplace health and safety, regulatory compliance, manufacturing guidance, environmental law, and public financing and development of real estate and related infrastructure. Mr. Mallen will primarily practice in the firm's growing labor and employment section, which was recently recognized as a leading practice by top global legal ranking directory, Chambers & Partners, and in its environmental law section.

 

In his role at Chambliss, Mr.

Mallen will assist clients in their efforts to comply with local, state, and federal safety, health, and environmental regulations and standards. He will help clients assess worksites, factories, warehouses, and construction jobs to identify and manage hazards and design and implement policies and procedures for ensuring compliance. Mr. Mallen will work with clients to reach their important critical objective – maintaining a safe, healthy, and productive workplace.

 

“Mike’s real-life heavy manufacturing and industry experience allows him to connect with the unique challenges and opportunities facing our clients,” said Rosemarie L. Hill, chair of the firm's labor and employment section. “His combination of legal and business knowledge offers a valuable advantage to our clients as they navigate the risks associated with local, state, and federal regulatory authorities.”

 

Practicing law for more than 30 years, Mr. Mallen has achieved great distinction for his decades of work in resolving workplace safety, health, and environmental enforcement issues. His background includes direct involvement in both heavy manufacturing and remediation and redevelopment of idle industrial sites known as brownfields. Because of his focused skill in brownfields development, the United States House of Representatives called on Mr. Mallen to testify on and contribute to reform of Superfund laws, which address the cleanup of hazardous sites. Mr. Mallen has served as a business owner, executive, and as in-house legal counsel for regional and publicly traded industrial manufacturing companies.

 

"I am delighted to join Chambliss, a law firm with a best-in-class platform for addressing the legal needs of manufacturers and contractors. The skill sets and talents of my colleagues perfectly complement my 30-plus years in safety, health, and environmental law. Chambliss is known for protecting the interests of our clients, and I'm looking forward to sharing my first-hand industry experience in maintaining safe and compliant workplaces and operational facilities and responding to and managing catastrophic workplace accidents, all with the highest level of integrity, urgency, and care," said Mr. Mallen.

 

Mr. Mallen’s past work includes representing national construction contractors in Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) fatality enforcement actions; representing, defending, and obtaining resolutions for manufacturers relating to chemical explosions and electrocutions; and negotiating tax incentives for public infrastructure around commercial projects exceeding $100 million across multiple states. Mr. Mallen regularly appears before governing bodies to resolve legal, regulatory, environmental, and real estate issues for clients.

 

Outside of the firm, Mr. Mallen contributes to the community through multiple economic and civic organizations, including serving on the board of the Chattanooga Municipal Airport Authority and various municipal task forces. He is a graduate of the University of Tennessee College of Law and holds a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He is licensed to practice law in Florida and Tennessee.
