Responding to environmental enforcement action brought by federal, state or local regulatory agencies can be a perilous undertaking. In these instances, companies seeking sophisticated defense, deep technical knowledge and vigorous advocacy turn to CSG.
CSG’s Environmental Group has extensive experience handling significant environmental enforcement matters before the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP), the Army Corps of Engineers, the United States Environmental Protection Agency, municipal land use boards and federal and state courts.
Our environmental enforcement practice covers:
- Cost recovery actions
- Natural resource damage claims
- Civil and criminal enforcement actions resulting from discharges or permit violations
- Site Remediation Reform Act (SRRA) and Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) matters
- Oversight of investigations and cleanups pursuant to the NJDEP Technical Requirements for Site Remediation
Additionally, we maintain a national Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) practice and regularly advise on such projects, as well as those involving Brownfields issues. Based on our representation, clients have avoided or minimized significant environmental penalties.
