Environmental andToxic Torts

Our Environmental and Toxic Torts team partners with in-house counsel, environmental managers and consultants to address a wide scope of environmental matters. We work closely with real estate developers and industrial clients on the inspection and reclamation of contaminated properties to make them productive again.

Our services include:

  • Litigation involving contaminated properties, toxic torts and product liability
  • Advising on permitting, compliance and enforcement issues regarding air, water and land
  • Remediation (e.g., brownfield, due diligence and risk management)
  • Assessment and allocation of environmental risk in real estate, lending, and corporate transactions

The team’s bench strength includes leadership across the American Bar Association’s environmental committee and decades of experience successfully litigating environmental matters. Combining our talents, we work to achieve environmentally-sound solutions that stimulate economic growth. From proactive counsel to government enforcement action or private party litigation, we develop and implement strategies aimed toward sound and cost-effective outcomes.
