Environmental Insurance

We have long been a preeminent firm in pursuing insurance for environmental claims and liabilities, under both traditional general liability policies and newer environmental ones.  We have a proven record of obtaining coverage for public and private clients, including through litigation where necessary.  Our expertise in insurance law and policy language enables our clients to maximize their insurance recovery.

Our effectiveness in applying policy language to environmental claims has enabled us to obtain coverage in scores of cases.  We have obtained and structured creative resolutions of complex disputes, such as our recovery in multiple settlements of several million dollars for a water district from a dozen insurers of the company that contaminated its water supply. With PFAS remediation a growing concern, we are now advising airports around the nation on their coverage options.  Our experience covers a wide range of environmental claims under general liability and specialized pollution and industrial policies, including:

  • Air pollution
  • Airport environmental cleanups
  • Commercial property contamination
  • Distressed properties
  • Drinking water contamination
  • Fuel storage & dispensing facilities
  • Hazardous waste and oil
  • Nuclear waste
  • PFAS contamination
  • Residential property contamination

We also draw on that experience to advise project owners on insurance strategies for future environmental obligations.
