Federal Superfund Litigation Requires Experienced Representation
The Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) holds parties accountable for hazardous substances found on their property. Edlin Gallagher Huie + Blum helps businesses across California that face accusations of environment pollution. Our team of trial-tested attorneys will help you build the strongest possible defense.
CERCLA: What Is It?
CERCLA, also known as Superfund law, makes businesses liable for any hazardous materials found on their property. It is important to know that a company can be held liable for environmental pollutants released in an area even before California passed the law in 1980. You can also be held financially responsible for the entire cleanup of the damaged site. Environmental cleanups can be extremely costly and have a massive impact on your business.
While it may feel like you are fighting an impossible battle, we are here to defend your rights. For example, perhaps the waste was a result of a third party with whom you had no contractual relationship. The contaminants may have entered the environment before your business inhabited the property. Regardless, we will carefully evaluate the facts behind your case and partner with environmental experts when necessary. Our team regularly employs complex hydrology and engineering concepts to defend our clients. When you’re unsure of where to turn, we can help.
