Toxic & Environmental Liability

EMK attorneys have significant experience in advising and advocating for clients facing issues of toxic and environmental liability. Many of EMK’s clients find out about potential liability only after it seems too late to reverse the course of action, frequently after a governmental entity attempts to halt development, refers a site to enforcement/clean-up or attempts to pursue cost recovery. Where other firms lack the experience (both legally and substantively) in the environmental realm, EMK is well situated to fight for our clients’ rights and preserve their interests in the further development or operation of their property.
