Environmental Litigation

Defending what’s yours; protecting what’s yours.

Young Moore provides legal services in litigation and in administrative proceedings based on state and federal environmental statutes and regulations, common law nuisance and trespass, and toxic torts. Our experience includes federal Superfund/CERCLA and RCRA, federal asbestos regulations, state underground storage tank statutes and regulations, state sedimentation control regulations, state groundwater regulations, and the Oil Pollution and Hazardous Substances Control Act.

We assist clients faced with lead and mold contamination issues affecting persons and property. We have established a reliable network of consultants to aid in assessment, remediation and litigation. We can also assist clients in obtaining available insurance. The firm also has experience in toxic tort litigation and employee exposure in the workplace.

We combine the experience of our environmental trial lawyers with our real estate and business attorneys to advise clients and prepare appropriate documents for transactions involving property impacted or potentially impacted by pollution, and to assist clients in obtaining and understanding environmental assessments. We recognize the imperative of protecting the environment and the harsh consequences to owners, operators and transporters if a proper response is not undertaken to a pollution event.

Settling upon a cost-effective assessment and remediation with the responsible government agency often requires knowledgeable cooperation and effective advocacy. We understand how potential environmental liabilities can adversely affect a business’s operations. That’s why we help our clients identifying realistic goals and objectives. We help them consider litigation and alternative dispute resolution experience to work toward prompt, cost-effective resolutions.
