Superfund

We represent owners, operators, transporters and generators in litigation, arbitration, mediation, PRP group negotiations and direct agency negotiations regarding federal and state Superfund sites and closed landfills all over the country. We have coordinated remedial investigations, feasibility studies and risk assessments and managed the activities of technical consultants. Unlike most Superfund lawyers, we have tried multiple CERCLA cost recovery claims to judgment, and successfully defended those judgments on appeal.

We demonstrate pragmatism in solving remedy disagreements and direct client remedial dollars to achieve regulatory agency program objectives at the least possible cost. We are particularly sensitive to the interplay among remedial issues, allocation issues, liability insurance coverage issues and toxic tort exposure. When necessary, we have pursued and defended litigation by and against government agencies and pursued and defended numerous contribution and cost recovery cases.
