Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC represents private land owners in environmental litigation and related matters across the country. Private property contamination takes many forms, including soil, groundwater, surface water and air issues. Often, the land owner is unaware of historical contamination of the property, or of contamination that has migrated from adjacent or nearby properties. Our attorneys are able to obtain substantial recoveries for clients that partially or completely offset environmental remediation costs associated with these sites. Often, the contamination is not identified until decades after the contaminating activity has ceased. Identification of responsible parties can be difficult and may require extensive tracing of corporate history and analysis of corporate transactions. Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC has extensive experience and skillsets associated with the identification and pursuit of responsible parties. Further, our attorneys assist in the identification and collection of other sources of contribution, such as historical insurance policies and indemnification agreements. Our firm's attorneys also have years of experience in determining the costs of the environmental impacts from various types of contamination, such as diminished market value, cleanup costs and the impact on the use or redevelopment of the property. For example, for the past decade, the firm's lawyers have served as co-national counsel to oversee, manage and prosecute a docket of cost recovery claims west of the Mississippi River for a Fortune 100 client.
