At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, we have represented port authorities in environmental matters across the country. We have experience representing our clients as plaintiffs and defendants in a wide variety of environmental actions, including cost recovery actions, contribution actions, Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Clean Water Act (CWA), and Oil Pollution Act (OPA) litigation, nuisance and property damage litigation, natural resource damages litigation, and many other matters relating to contamination and impaired real property. We also regularly deal with sediment and dredge material issues affecting ports and terminal operators.
Likewise, corporate responsibility for historical environmental issues is often a key issue in environmental litigation, and we have extensive experience in tracing corporate ownership and liabilities to the responsible party. Similarly, expert witnesses are an essential component of any environmental case. Through decades of practice and educational backgrounds in government, earth sciences, economics, ecology and the social sciences, our attorneys are able to work at a very high level of cooperation and understanding with environmental, technical and economic expert witnesses.
