Environmental Law And The Government

The government regulates how people act related to the environment. For example, the government establishes and enforces the level of hazardous substances allowed in water, soil and in the air. It also determines whether or not permits for use of certain hazardous substances can be issued. Violation of these regulations may lead to litigation. Our firm has represented the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for over 10 years. We are proud of our service to the state. Some of the matters we have litigated for the state include:

  • In Re MTBE, NJDEP v Amerada Hess et al.
  • NJDEP v. Bayer Cropscience
  • NJDEP v ExxonMobil et al.
  • NJDEP v. Minnesota Mining and Manufacturing Company et al
