Today’s business people and in-house counsel require remediation attorneys who have seen dozens of projects from beginning to end, who understand how each issue may affect the final result, and who can provide “hands on” practical counsel.
- Our attorneys are well versed in the legal issues encountered during remediation projects, such as those posed by RCRA, CERCLA/Superfund, TSCA, and the various state counterparts, tank acts, and voluntary/brownfields programs.
- Unlike many of our competitors, Babst Calland’s remediation attorneys also do not shy away from the complicated technical issues typically involved with these projects. Indeed, many of our remediation attorneys have significant technical backgrounds of their own, including engineering, biophysics, chemistry, biology, environmental resource management, and aquatic biology.
- We understand the business and societal aspects of a remediation. We have extensive experience with remediation projects associated with land development deals and acquisitions/divestitures, and we understand the potential ripple effects that remediation projects may have on “unrelated” corporate matters such as shareholder relations, community relations, access to capital/debt, and governmental affairs.
- We know that the planned or zoned use of a property may dramatically affect the cost, timing, and approach to a remediation. Our remediation attorneys are experienced in addressing these issues and, where appropriate, can draw on our land use and public sector colleagues for focused assistance.
Babst Calland’s attorneys possess a unique combination of training, experience, and commitment sets us apart from other environmental attorneys. Clients throughout the country rely on our remediation attorneys to assist them in developing innovative and cost-effective solutions to today’s complex remediation and brownfields development problems.
“Whether confronted with a simple tank overflow ‘hog and haul’ or a sophisticated Superfund RI/FS, a successful remediation team has to be able to prioritize competing demands, navigate through a complex regulatory maze, and keep the ‘big picture’ in mind. Babst Calland remediation lawyers have the unique experience and skill sets to assist our clients in these matters, and we have been key members of successful remediation teams across the country.”
