Comprehensive Environmental Defense

The attorneys working in our environmental defense practice deliver innovative, comprehensive legal representation to each of our clients. Our legal professionals counsel and advise clients from the initial onset of the claim through its ultimate resolution. Environmental-related claims can be challenging for clients because the laws and regulations governing environmental actions are complex and often overlap extensively at the federal, state and local levels.

In addition to these legal complexities, environmental claims typically involve intricate scientific, medical and technical issues. At Conroy Simberg, our attorneys have extensive experience working with environmental laws and regulations. We stay on top of emerging legal and industry issues, ensuring that our clients are aware of important developments that may impact their businesses and operations.

When handling an environmental-related case, our attorneys conduct extensive discovery to identify and secure all of the documents and evidence necessary to thoroughly investigate the claim. We carefully examine the cause and extent of the alleged injuries and damages and consult with industry experts capable of analyzing claims involving complex scientific and technical issues. Our legal team also undertakes a careful review of all relevant insurance policies. The attorneys at our firm are well-versed in complex insurance coverage issues and use their extensive experience to develop strategies aimed at resolving cases in the quickest and most favorable manner possible for our clients.

Resolving Environmental Actions Quickly and Cost-Effectively

At Conroy Simberg we work with our clients to carefully review environmental claims and formulate a plan of action as to how to best proceed. We understand that the time and costs associated with defending environmental litigation are significant. Our legal team focuses on resolving environmental actions quickly and cost-effectively by negotiating settlements whenever possible. We also have extensive experience settling cases in mediation and arbitration proceedings.

Our attorneys are skilled litigators with years of experience successfully representing clients in federal and state courts and administrative proceedings. They combine this experience with their in-depth understanding of environmental issues to devise litigation tactics and methods that best protect and preserve our clients’ interests and objectives.
