Pesticides and Herbicides

Firm attorneys served as special environmental counsel to a major agricultural products company in a massive, multi-party array of state and federal regulatory enforcement actions and state-wide toxic tort suits arising out of alleged arsenic contamination at a closed herbicide formulation plant.

Among other things, the firm represented the company in negotiating administrative consent orders with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to remediate the plant site and undertake soil replacement activities at over 100 residential tracts neighboring that site.

We also assisted the company in settling hundreds of personal injury and property damage suits involving current and past residents. This litigation involved both common law tort claims and federal and state statutory cost recovery and natural resource damage claims.

We invite you to contact one of our attorneys to discuss how we might assist you in addressing any environmental challenges or opportunities that impact your company’s interests.
