Practical and cost effective solutions to complex environmental claims come from understanding both the law and our client’s business goals.
Our team's litigation experience ranges from the defense of Fortune 500 manufacturers in federal court and administrative hearings to the defense of small businesses in state civil actions and to pursuit of affirmative environmental claims.
Whether our clients are cited for violating a local lead-based paint ordinance, exceeding a wastewater discharge permit, or releasing hazardous waste, our team has experience defending and resolving enforcement actions. We also represent potentially responsible parties (PRPs) in complex Superfund matters, including serving as counsel for steering committees, negotiating administrative orders, and defending cost recovery actions.
Our knowledge of federal and state regulatory frameworks and our experience with the EPA, and many state environmental agencies, help us recommend effective strategies to successfully avoid, or minimize the impact of, enforcement actions.
