Environmental litigation involves complex issues at the intersection of law and science.

 

Cutting through the weeds

Our environmental litigators cut through these complexities by bringing together a deep bench of environmental and trial attorneys who have decades of nationwide environmental litigation experience and success.

Our approach to resolving environmental disputes starts with a focus on our clients’ individual needs.

We draw on our practical knowledge of environmental risks and liabilities, creative problem-solving skills, proven trial tactics and sophisticated discovery and e-discovery resources to develop dispute resolution and litigation strategies that meet our clients’ needs and achieve efficient and cost-effective results.

 

Considering other options

We understand that avoiding litigation is often the best strategy. We help clients navigate the mediation, advanced dispute resolution, and settlement process which can more quickly resolve environmental disputes and litigation matters while controlling risk and costs.
