Successor Liability, Alter Ego & Fraudulent Transfers

The litigation of complex environmental cases frequently involves intricate corporate ownership issues that must be deciphered in order to impose liability on corporate successors, assigns, divested or merged entities or parent companies. Asset ownership and corporate structure can change dramatically from the time a chemical is produced, released, or discharged into the environment to the present day when technological and scientific methods are available to trace and assess the environmental impact.

The attorneys of Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC have extensive experience litigating and analyzing corporate structuring issues. As a result, our firm offers unique insight and the ability to efficiently trace liability and evaluate particular issues associated with liabilities retained, conveyed or arguably stranded in corporate structures such as stock purchase agreements, holding companies and merged operations.
