Environmental laws and rules regulating "hazmat" are complex. Some carry criminal and monetary penalties that have the potential to leave a company in ruins. Our attorneys are experienced in helping clients with required environmental quality assessments, as well as with enforcement actions concerning hazardous materials. We routinely represent clients in cases arising from the shipment, transportation, storage, and manufacturing of hazardous materials. Our lawyers have been involved in airport environmental litigation and have defended companies facing penalties under the California Environmental Quality Act.
We assist with carrier training, shipment labeling, material packaging, and compliance enforcement (49 CFR 171-179). If you package, accept or transport hazardous materials, you need capable counsel ready and able to assist with any issues that arise.
