Environmental Law

Lindabury provides environmental counseling to its clients across the entire spectrum of environmental issues. Our environmental attorneys have both legal experience and technical experience in the sciences related to environmental law. We routinely deal with issues involving site inspection and remediation, cost recovery, liability and cost allocation, underground storage tanks, asbestos, natural resource damages and compliance counseling under both state and federal environmental laws. We have developed substantial capabilities regarding brownfields, wetlands and flood hazard issues, permit compliance and negotiation, legal obligations created by the spill or discharge of hazardous substances, and the impact of state and federal laws upon business and real property transactions. We offer clients thorough representation in administrative enforcement hearings and in negotiations with state and federal environmental agencies. The firm also advises clients on new developments in environmental law and assists clients in preparing to meet new obligations as they arise.

A significant portion of our environmental practice involves the application of, and compliance with, New Jersey's Industrial Site Recovery Act, known as "ISRA" (formerly known as the Environmental Cleanup Responsibility Act or "ECRA"), Site Remediation Reform Act, known as “SRRA” and the state's other clean-up statutes. The firm has successfully handled numerous contamination and remediation cases, and is fully familiar with the evolving policies of the state and the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

We also provide our clients with quality litigation services in connection with environmental matters. The firm has presented, as well as defended, numerous claims relating to environmental contamination, including claims for property damage and toxic torts. In addition, the firm has extensive experience litigating issues of insurance coverage involving environmental contamination.
