Environmental Litigation

Riar’s environmental team defends clients in civil and administrative enforcement proceedings under all major federal environmental laws and their state variants, including the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Resource Conservation , the Comprehensive Environmental Response Compensation and Liability, and the Toxic Substances Control. We craft creative settlements in enforcement actions and work closely with regulators to obtain favourable settlements for our clients.

We have also successfully defended against individual and class action personal injury, property damage, and nuisance claims filed in connection with alleged release of hazardous substances. Our team has represented clients in private litigation over the allocation of clean-up obligations under environmental laws, common law, and contractual arrangements. We represent clients regarding insurance coverage for environmental liabilities.

Our white-collar criminal defense team defends clients against criminal prosecutions under environmental laws. We represent domestic and foreign individuals and corporations in criminal enforcement investigations, grand jury proceedings, prosecutions, and settlements involving hazardous waste management, asbestos exposure, and Clean Water Act violations.
