From single-property contamination to the most complex situations, from harbors and airports to industrial facilities and landfills, we advise clients throughout the country on environmental cleanup and remediation. We work closely with Licensed Site Professionals and other consultants on every aspect of remediation: investigation, regulatory reporting, remedy development, access agreements, settlement negotiations and agreements, cost allocation, litigation, insurance recovery, and natural resources damages liability.
We help clients turn the seemingly daunting task of addressing contamination into a manageable, organized project, allowing clients to focus on their businesses.
A WIDER PERSPECTIVE ON ENVIRONMENTAL CLEANUPS
Environmental remediations are intricate and often come with long timelines and significant costs. At the outset, our environmental and construction teams work closely with engineers and other consultants to develop efficient plans, anticipate hurdles, and mitigate risks in contracts.
Our counsel covers all aspects of hazardous waste cleanups, including:
- Remedy development
- Access agreements
- Cost allocation
- Insurance Recovery
- Settlement negotiations and agreements
- Natural resources damages (NRD) liability
- Regulatory reporting
- Federal and state agency enforcement
We are particularly effective in obtaining insurance coverage to recover cleanup costs. Our representation at hundreds of sites – Superfund sites, industrial facilities, wastewater systems, telecommunications, power plants, medical research labs, and everything in between – has enabled clients to recover insurance proceeds and minimize their own financial obligation for the costs.
