Waste Management & Cleanup Practice

The existing regulatory system for managing the hazardous waste generated by businesses and government agencies is one of the most complicated ever created. The parallel “Superfund” regulations for cleaning up old hazardous waste sites are nearly as complex and can lead to unnecessary expense and unsatisfactory cleanups if not managed properly.

We help our clients understand these regulations to ensure compliance as they build and operate their facilities, and to help clean up if any accidents happen. We negotiate administrative orders to conduct remediation and settle liabilities, work with technical consultants to investigate sites, help clients recover their cleanup costs, and defend clients against unjust cost-recovery actions.
