Environmental PracticeSimon, Peragine, Smith & Redfearn, LLP has a rich history of representation in environmental/toxic tort litigation. In this practice, we have had the privilege of advising and representing developers, owners, construction firms, lenders, lessees, and industrial clients from the energy, chemical, oil and gas, and consumer product sectors.

In environmental litigation, the firm has defended private entities against government enforcement actions for site clean-up and has handled private cost recovery cases in which one private party sues another for clean-up costs. Also, our attorneys have represented clients in challenging agency rule making, as well as administrative enforcement actions against individual parties.

In transactional matters, the firm provides competent counseling on matters related to the structure of business transactions, and we continue to advise clients on investigation, pollution, and remediation issues (which most often involve asbestos, silica, lead paint, radon, and other naturally occurring radioactive materials). The firm further provides advice to clients concerning compliance issues, such as those concerning the transfer of environmental permits. Incorporated into our transactional practice is the guidance we provide clients on proper due diligence, Brownfields redevelopment, financial and other tax incentives, the means for insuring against liabilities, preparing warranties, indemnifications, and other contractual provisions to better allocate environmental risks among parties.

In regulatory matters, the firm provides counsel on federal and state environmental compliance issues. Our attorneys are well acquainted with the issues that arise out of the federal and state environmental statutes and regulations, including the Clear Air Act (CAA), Clean Water Act (CWA), Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), and National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).
