Toxic Torts

Toxic tort litigation typically arises out of state and federal environmental regulation such as the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, Superfund, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act and many other state and local environmental laws.  Our attorneys are experienced in defending civil and criminal enforcement actions and citizen suits involving all major state and federal environmental statutes.  We have represented manufacturers and users of a variety of chemicals and other substances in state and federal court in defense against individual claims and purported class actions for both bodily injury and loss of property value due to exposure or proximity to hazardous materials, including hazardous waste sites.  In addition, we can provide effective counseling related to product warranty issues and liability disclaimers.
