Skilled Litigation Counsel with Decades of Experience Handling Environmental Law Matters
At Rendigs, we have decades of experience representing companies in Ohio, Kentucky and Colorado in environmental law matters. Our attorneys have been handling claims related to indoor air quality and sick buildings since those terms were coined. Changing construction techniques, increasing medical concerns about the dangers of mold, and intense media attention have combined to stimulate litigation activity in this area of environmental law.
Outdoors, the attorneys in our environmental law practice group have experience defending against claims brought under federal and state environmental laws and regulations related to hazardous materials transportation and disposal, material spills, chemical exposure, and water and air pollution—among other issues. We are seeing an uptick in litigation in this area as well, including both private litigation and state and federal law enforcement proceedings.
Our Experience Encompasses Substantially All Regulated Areas and Federal Environmental Laws
Whether indoors or out, companies can encounter environmental issues in an extremely broad range of scenarios. From asbestos and lead to mold and contaminated drinking water, numerous issues fall within the scope of the state and federal environmental laws and regulations applicable to companies in Ohio, Kentucky and Colorado. At the federal level, this includes (but is by no means limited to) laws such as:
- Clean Air Act
- Clean water Act
- Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA or Superfund)
- Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)
- Pollution Prevention Act (PPA)
- Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
- Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
Our attorneys have experience representing clients in litigation involving substantially all regulated areas and federal environmental laws. Whether your company is facing litigation against a private party, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), or any other state or federal authority, the attorneys in our environmental law practice group can use their experience to help you make informed decisions and execute a targeted and cost-effective defense strategy.
In many cases, environmental litigation can present not only the risk of liability, but also the risk of reputational harm. We take this into account when representing clients in environmental matters; and, when necessary, we work with our clients to restore their public images after facing allegations at the state or federal level.
