Dicker & Dicker’s Environmental Litigation attorneys handle a wide range of civil and administrative matters, representing individuals, companies, and other entities in cases under both state and federal environmental statutes.
Our clients range from property owners, businesses, individual tenants, and fiduciaries of contaminated properties. We step in to assist when they face litigation and enforcement action such as:
- Federal and state Superfund sites and natural resource damage actions
- Cost-recovery actions for environmental damages
- Citizen suits under federal and state statutes
- Agency investigation and enforcement actions
- Proposition 65 private attorney general suits
Our representation includes responses to notices of violation from federal, state and local authorities and negotiating complex multi-party settlements. We have handled contested water quality matters, including groundwater contamination cases, and challenges to Potentially Responsible Party designation from lead oversight agencies. Representative matters include cases dealing with chlorinated solvents to petroleum hydrocarbons and fuel oxygenates contamination. We have helped our clients reach amicable resolution with adjoining property owners and state and local agencies, but have also successfully defended against private and government enforcement proceedings.
