ENVIRONMENTAL LAW

 

          Representation of individuals and businesses with respect to compliance with state and federal environmental statutes and claims arising from environmental damage.

          The following are examples of our representation in this practice area:

            When hazardous contamination was identified on a major construction site, Sprague & Sprague represented neighborhood community groups in negotiating with the project developer and environmental consultants to effect appropriate site remediation and an overall resolution of the neighbors’ concerns.

            We successfully represented a family after a high pressure petroleum pipeline ruptured under their property. The Firm prosecuted claims against the pipeline company and others in a jury trial, invoking a federal oil spill statute as well as state law theories of liability, resulting in a significant judgment for our clients, which we successfully defended on appeal.
