Environmental Litigation

There are a variety of ways in which environmental issues can become litigation matters.  For landowners with contaminated parcels, litigation often involves the negotiation of investigative and clean-up measures with governmental authorities, or the attempt to recoup costs from others.  Litigation involving insurance coverage involves whether there is, or is not, insurance coverage to a particular discharge.
