Environmental Disputes

Benesch attorneys help their clients cost-effectively and creatively resolve environmental disputes, which arise in myriad forms: from government enforcement claims alleging noncompliance with regulatory obligations, to complex Superfund cleanup litigation involving anywhere from a few defendants to dozens of parties, to disputes between private parties seeking to transfer or allocate responsibility for an environmental liability.
We routinely defend civil and administrative environmental investigations and enforcement actions taken by the government. We also have handled numerous appeals before the Ohio Environmental Review Appeals Commission. Our environmental litigation practice represents individual companies in Superfund litigation and various state proceedings.

The Group’s Superfund practice has involved the representation of individual companies in large multi-party cases. The Group has extensive litigation experience in private cost recovery actions and has achieved successful numerous substantial settlements on behalf of clients.
