Disaster Recovery

In the event of a natural disaster, businesses can face environmental challenges in three phases: immediate response and remediation; repair and rebuilding; and long-term restoration of production capacity. Our environmental team helps in all these areas.

Our counsel assists clients in their understanding of the potential legal consequences of spills or releases caused by natural disasters and the legal standards that apply to responses.
