Our clients encounter a wide variety of environmental contamination claims, ranging from leaking underground storage tanks for residential heating oil to historical industrial pollution uncovered during the redevelopment of a commercial property. Whatever the case may be, our subrogation attorneys delve into the history of the affected site and navigate the often daunting patchwork of state and federal statutes and regulations to identify potential avenues for recovery. Where necessary, they work closely with technical consultants to identify the scope and extent of the pollution and where it came from. The type of contaminant(s) at issue and whether groundwater or navigable waters have been impacted will determine what remedies are available and how much time you have to pursue them. Depending on the circumstances of the loss, you may be entitled to make a claim against the Oil Spill Liability Trust Fund even if there is no outside third party responsible for the loss.

Once potential targets are identified, our subrogation lawyers aggressively pursue recovery and work to overcome potential defenses. When pre-suit settlement negotiations fail, our experienced, multi-disciplinary team of litigators pursue potential targets through litigation.
