Poole & Shaffery, LLP has many years of experience representing business entities in environmental matters arising before state and federal courts and regulatory agencies.
Our case victories include the defense of "Fortune 500" companies as well as smaller, closely-held businesses and individuals in litigation and regulatory proceedings. Our attorneys have experience appearing before numerous regulatory boards, including the EPA, the DHS, Air Quality Management Control Districts, and the Department of Toxic Substance Control.
Issues arising under Proposition 65
Environmental issues often involve toxic tort exposure issues involving a host of contaminants, including wastewater treatment of organisms, asbestos, chemicals, metals, latex, lead, wood and pesticides. The desirability of early investigation, immediate containment, and prompt crisis management to mitigate the impact of later regulatory or criminal enforcement cannot be understated.
Because many of these matters are raised in the context of class actions, mass torts and complex litigation, we have developed a system of litigation/claim management which enables us to provide legal representation with a high degree of efficiency. Our systems prevent duplicative and wasted effort, enabling us to obtain the fastest results our proactive defense strategies permit.
