Practice/Industry Group Overview

Environmental law is arguably one of the most complex areas of modern legal practice. There are courts and administrative proceedings at the local, state and federal levels, with overlapping legal and regulatory jurisdictions. The science underlying the legal issues is both technically difficult and rapidly changing, placing extraordinary demands on legal professionals.

Fortunately, our environmental and toxic tort attorneys have both the credentials and the experience to master the scientific and legal challenges in these cases. The firm has built an outstanding record of aggressively defending these cases, including toxic torts, mold claims, chemical exposures, the Oil Pollution Act, and every level of regulatory compliance. Our attorneys have helped clients with emergency response phases of cases, helping clients to properly investigate accidents immediately. We also have been fortunate to accumulate a number of notable and precedent-setting verdicts on behalf of our clients.
