Environmental Litigation

The litigators in the environmental group are trial lawyers, combining well-honed courtroom and negotiation skills with sophisticated knowledge of the environmental laws that form the basis of the actions in which we are involved.   Our environmental litigation work includes:

  • Agency enforcement actions
  • Environmental citizen suits
  • Proposition 65 litigation
  • Complex toxic tort litigation
  • Federal and state cost recovery/contribution litigation
  • Natural resource damage litigation
  • Environmental criminal defense
  • Land use litigation
  • CEQA litigation

Our environmental litigators include former federal prosecutors from the United States Department of Justice and United States Attorneys' Offices, and several who began their careers at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.  Armed with a vast array of analytical skills, litigation support and trial technologies, our trial lawyers have the experience, resources and ability to convey complex issues and scientific/technical concepts to judges, juries, mediators and other parties.
