With increasingly tighter, more complex regulations, and pressure to address environmental impacts, the responsibility of cleaning up a contaminated site can often result in complicated, multi-party litigation that can come with potentially huge costs in testing and remediation.
The lawyers at McLennan Ross strive to make the process of contaminated site litigation as painless as possible. We work hard to provide practical judgment and clear guidance, regardless of the complexity of an environmental issue. We offer smart solutions, tailored to unique needs and delivered in an understandable way.
We do more than just litigate.
At least 75 percent of our lawyers are engaged in some form of advocacy. Our decades of litigation and trial experience allows us to be efficient, cost-effective, and skillful in managing legal, technical, and community issues.
Our lawyers find innovative strategies that include establishing damage assessments and quantifying damages, feasibility studies, limiting the scope of liability, successfully resolving natural resource and environmental claims, the defense and prosecution of cost recovery and contribution actions, and managing brownfield developments requiring regulatory approvals.
We have strong relationships in the industry and regularly communicate with regulators and collaborate with consultants and other professionals. Our lawyers strategically negotiate with government agencies regarding various aspects of site cleanup, remedial investigations, human health risk assessments, ecological risk assessments, regulatory clean up orders, and government cost recovery.
We find realistic and workable solutions to complex problems.
Our lawyers have assisted companies of all sizes and individual landowners in successfully navigating the complex laws that regulate the remediation, sale, and use of a contaminated site.
You can rest assured that our experienced litigators and solicitors will always find solutions that are tailored to each unique situation. We use whatever strategy is best for our clients, whether that includes commercial agreements, or litigation, or alternative dispute resolutions, including arbitration and mediation.
