Businesses benefit from our ability to recover costs for unexpected environmental litigation. We are often able to recover both costs for past and future cleanup and attorneys fees through:
- Insurance coverage, including under comprehensive general liability (CGL) policies that were in effect before 1985
- Litigation directed toward manufacturers of toxic substances
- State and federal government programs designed to provide funding for cleanup
We also counsel clients on how to tailor insurance agreements to protect the company from future environmental liability. We evaluate a number of factors in determining the adequate level of insurance coverage, including ongoing operational risks, indemnity obligations, and cleanup costs.
