Our nationally recognized environmental group defends the entire spectrum of environmental litigation and government enforcement actions throughout the U.S. We combine powerful courtroom experience with a keen understanding of the intricate regulatory framework of environmental laws to represent clients in a wide range of controversies, from common law disputes over contaminated property to claims under state and federal environmental laws.
Well-versed in an area of law that relies heavily on science, our environmental lawyers deftly contest Superfund and RCRA litigation, landfill cases and complex class actions and contract disputes over environmental issues. We handle toxic tort matters from chemical exposure cases to mold and asbestos litigation and manage multi-party litigation.
Transactional Risk Assessment and Management
During the course of corporate or real estate transactions, we work with our clients to evaluate environmental liabilities and to mitigate or decrease the financial and reputational risks of ownership and cleanup. We identify environmental problems and offer solutions.
Regulatory Compliance Counseling
We work with clients on achieving compliance with environmental laws and regulations. Should enforcement become necessary, we ardently defend our clients. When appropriate, we work with government officials to negotiate penalties, develop compliance schedules or devise other methods of achieving compliance.
Our Insurance Policyholder group offers seamless litigation and counseling about coverage for environmental risks and liabilities involving Superfund sites, environmental pollution, catastrophic losses and construction.
