Environmental and Toxic Tort Law
The attorneys of our Environmental Law practice possess the experience to provide critical guidance to clients faced with complex environmental law challenges. Clients ranging from large Fortune 500 companies to small independently owned operations routinely seek our advice on a variety of environmental matters, including issues relating to state and federal regulations, environmental compliance issues, waste collection and disposal, air and water permitting, due diligence, reporting requirements, and environmental crisis management.
Our environmental practice has obtained proven results in all major areas of environmental law including litigation, compliance, and permitting issues that can arise across a wide spectrum of industries. We have appeared before the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, the EPA, the Louisiana State Police and the United States Corps of Engineers and also have extensive experience in litigation involving the Clean Water Act, the Clean Air Act, CERCLA and RCRA.
Our team has also handled private oilfield legacy litigation involving the allocation of site restoration responsibility imposed by private contractual agreement and by state and federal environmental regulations and law. We work together with our clients to find innovative approaches to remediate contaminated property and limit potential liability.
