Our environmental lawyers have prosecuted and defended numerous cost recovery, contribution and other environmental actions with outstanding results. The Firm is a pioneer of effective theories and strategies for the recovery of remediation costs and related damages from historical owners, operators and their insurers. We understand that good results are not measured solely by the amount of a settlement or judgment but also by how much it costs to achieve that result. Alternative dispute resolution (ADR) techniques are often used to minimize litigation costs. The goal is to either maximize the ultimate net recovery for plaintiffs or minimize the ultimate net loss, if any, for defendants. When litigation becomes necessary, our lawyers are experienced in complex and hard-fought litigation and armed with the know-how to obtain desired results. When staffing cases, we do not operate with a big firm mentality and prefer to assign attorneys and staff to cases leanly and effectively.
