Environmental Law

Barrett & McNagny's Environmental Group is tailored to meet the needs of our business and individual clients, from multi-million dollar CERCLA cost recovery litigation to negotiation with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and state agencies to site management of environmental issues.

Practice Highlights

Our Environmental Group focuses on applying its in-depth experience on a wide range of environmental issues with particular emphasis on the following:

Business Transactions and Land Use

Our Environmental Group represents buyers, sellers, developers, and financial institutions in connection with transactions involving business and real estate sales, purchases, leases, joint ventures, mortgages, and financings. Our role in these transactions includes preparing and evaluating environmental audit information to identify any potential environmental liabilities and risks, quantifying any existing liabilities and risks, proposing action plans for addressing any liabilities, and documenting the risk allocation agreed to by the parties.

We also represent land owners, developers and manufacturers in developing, building and expanding facilities. We provide counseling in permitting strategy, development of environmental impact analysis and defense against challenges brought by private opponents.

Regulatory and Compliance Counseling

Our Environmental Group assists our clients' efforts to achieve and maintain environmental compliance. This role includes permitting for air, water, and solid waste, and the development and implementation of audit and environmental compliance programs.

Superfund Representation

We represent clients in cases concerning government-initiated cost recovery, contribution and clean-up allocation issues, and enforcement actions under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act and other Federal and State environmental laws. Our attorneys help clients respond to government information requests, participate in joint steering committees of potentially responsible parties and help negotiate consent orders and agreements to resolve environmental claims.

We also represent clients in private cost recovery and contribution actions brought under Federal and State environmental laws. Many times such cases involve environmental contamination caused by the presence of underground storage tanks or past uses of sites.

Insurance Coverage

Our Environmental Group represents clients in matters involving insurance recovery for reimbursement of investigation and clean-up costs from carriers through negotiation and/or litigation. We counsel clients on simultaneously seeking such insurance coverage while providing advice on environmental problems.
