At Eisenstein Malanchuk, we have been instrumental in assisting corporations recover payments from responsible parties for clean-up of sites that have been contaminated by multiple parties. If you are responsible for an environmental cleanup, we can assist in locating other responsible parties, or their corporate successors, and in negotiations to obtain cost recovery.
Too often we see companies and municipalities who express the desire to seek contribution from other parties, but whose efforts are hampered by upfront financial and budgetary constraints, and an inability to devote the necessary resources on a time and expense basis to obtain such recoveries. By working on a success fee we can facilitate the cost recovery process and remove the impediments to pursuing this effort. For abandoned sites currently held by a government entity, we can review a portfolio of sites and identify opportunities for cost recovery, again pursuing cost recovery negotiations on a success fee basis.
