Our attorneys have extensive experience in the broad area of litigation arising from the presence of chemicals, hazardous substances, and other materials in the environment. We routinely handle cases, including class actions, arising under common law, such as trespass and nuisance, as well as the many other environmental laws regulating our surface and ground waters, air and land. Our litigation experience extends to releases of various substances and their movement through the environment, including chemical products, pesticides, petroleum products, solvents, fertilizers, and asbestos. We litigate hazardous sites, remediation and contribution actions under federal and state laws. We also negotiate and litigate civil penalties, permit conditions and permit non-compliance.
Prior to litigation, we often assist clients with compliance efforts under various environmental laws regulating industrial and commercial activities. Some commonly known areas include the Clean Water Act (wastewater, stormwater and sedimentation and erosion control), Clean Air Act (PSD and Title V), RCRA, FIFRA, CERCLA, USTs, Brownfields, Land-Use, Drycleaning Trust Funds, Audit Programs and Due Diligence.
