Margo Lopez is the Managing Shareholder of the Washington, D.C. office and a long time workplace safety lawyer representing mining companies in the coal, metal, stone, sand and gravel industries. She is a highly successful litigator and regularly presents company and industry cases before Administrative Law Judges, Federal Review Commissions and the United States Court of Appeals. In a recent high profile Court of Appeals case, Margo effectively saved the mining industry from severe limitations on its rights to manage its workforce, involving potentially millions of dollars, by successfully arguing that temporary reinstatement of miners in discrimination cases must end when MSHA decides not to take the case.
Margo represents mine operators in federal investigations and cases arising out of mine incidents and agency enforcement actions under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act.
