Alston & Bird’s attorneys have successfully defended over 200 environmental enforcement actions involving air, land or water contamination in virtually all 50 states. These matters include administrative, civil and criminal investigations and prosecutions at both the state and federal level under all major environmental laws (CAA, CWA, RCRA, TSCA, FIFRA, APPS and CERCLA). We routinely handle issues ranging from minor water act violations to large-scale chemical accidents, and we have helped shape key principles of environmental law through over 25 published federal and state environmental cases, including the United States Supreme Court’s unanimous decision defining the scope of available relief under the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) in Meghrig v. KFC Western, 516 U.S. 479 (1996), and more recently, the Ninth Circuit’s decision in Carson Harbor Village, Ltd. v. Unocal Corporation, 433 F. 3d 1260 (2006), which held that compliance with the National Contingency Plan is a requisite element for seeking cost recovery under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (CERCLA). In each instance, we use the attorney with the most appropriate skills and contacts to provide a precise and efficient representation for our clients.
