REDUCING VIOLATIONS AND PENALTIES FROM EPA

When the Environmental Protection Agency notified our client, a north Jersey manufacturing company, that it was in violation of the Clean Air Act and applicable Title V operating permit, the client called upon Lindabury environmental attorneys for representation. The company faced allegations of multiple violations and $400,000 in penalties. Partner Gary Danis and associate Monica Schroeck investigated the alleged violations, reviewed the client’s air consultant’s permit applications and advised on compliance requirements. After a detailed technical review of the allegations and the consultant’s role in the matter, and a settlement meeting with EPA technical personnel and counsel, the company reached a settlement for a greatly reduced number of violations and total penalty of $70,000. An additional settlement was reached with the insurance carrier for the consultant that further reduced the client’s expense. By combining technical and engineering backgrounds, insurance law expertise and many years of general environmental law experience, our environmental team was able to achieve a good result for the client.
