CCM+S attorneys practicing environmental law and pollution liability represent clients in a variety of civil litigation before both federal and state courts, as well as administrative agencies. We have extensive experience handling Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA) matters and defending mass tort cases throughout California for private clients and municipalities. We also are active in counseling our clients about alternative dispute resolution options in a variety of toxic tort, mold contamination, remediation, and other environmentally sensitive conditions.
Environmental and mass tort litigation, like any other kind of litigation, benefits from aggressive and early case management and investigation to define the case and limit exposure. Our team of trial and appellate lawyers has been successful in applying this approach to cases involving both private party litigants and government agencies.
