Environmental and Natural Resources

McDowell Hetherington lawyers have significant experience litigating disputes involving water contamination, soil remediation, and other environmental issues under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and other state and federal regulations. We represent clients in federal and state courts, and before administrative agencies, on complex environmental matters with components including regulatory enforcement, criminal issues, and tort or contract actions. We understand the consequences of environmental litigation, such as disrupting operations, distracting executives, and damaging a company’s brand, not to mention the monetary consequences of damages, fines, penalties, and debarment.

Our goal is to achieve cost-effective and favorable resolutions of environmental matters consistent with each client’s business objectives.
