Representative Experience

Represent client in investigating and remediating releases from a former distribution facility in a matter complicated by overlapping plumes.

Represent client in two different cost recovery actions commenced by current property owners asserting client’s liability for releases from USTs during prior period of client’s ownership and operation.

After claims submitted by others have been rejected by the UST Fund, ELG represents clients in factual investigations, reapplications, and administrative appeals, resulting in enrollment into the UST Fund.

Regularly counsel clients on strategies to minimize costs and liabilities in investigation and remediation of UST releases.
