R. Henry “Hank” Moore is a Member in the Coal, Manufacturing and Mining industry group, focusing primarily on coal and workplace safety and health. He practices out of the Firm’s office in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and is also the Managing Member for that office.
Hank’s practice is concentrated in the areas of compliance counseling, litigation of civil enforcement matters, accident investigation, counseling concerning criminal liability under various mining statutes, and discrimination and retaliation claims under federal statutory provisions related to mining and occupational safety and health.
Hank’s work in occupational safety and health law began in 1978, and since then he has represented and counseled clients in a variety of industries, including coal, metal and nonmetal mining, and stone, sand, and gravel operations. His practice covers regulatory and employment issues, including investigations by the U.S. Department of Labor and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania concerning civil and criminal liability of companies and individuals.
His many years in practice have given him time to reflect on what he enjoys doing most day-to-day. Between his time in college and law school, Hank worked for Westmoreland Coal Company and he is the third generation in his family to be involved in the mining industry. He has had a long-standing professional relationship with the mining industry. He’s always looking for an opportunity to visit the mines he’s working with, so he can see what has changed since he was shoveled conveyor belt in the Pine Branch Mine in southwestern Virginia. His work frequently requires that he interact with government personnel, business owners, and mine workers themselves – something he always enjoys. He has committed his professional life to representing the mining industry and the people who work in it.
In his free time, Hank enjoys his life-long passion of skiing, which he now shares with his daughter. He also can be found rooting on his favorite professional teams, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Pirates, and most recently the Pittsburgh Penguins.
