Represented corporations targeted as “potentially responsible parties” throughout USEPA’s Region V, as well as nationwide. Settlement was obtained for our client just before verdict in the Sauget, Illinois Superfund Site, and settlement was negotiated for our client in the $1 billion Fox River, Wisconsin sediment contamination contribution case, and the Waukegan Harbor, Illinois PCB harbor sediment cleanup. Further, a series of seven Administrative Orders on Consent (AOCs) was negotiated for a client involving dioxin sediment contamination of the Tittawabasee River in Michigan. Favorable settlement was also obtained for our plaintiff client in a contribution action against an environmental consultant for $1,750,000 in a dispute arising out of a commercial venture which failed in Chicago’s Streeterville neighborhood due to the discovery of radioactive thorium.
