Catastrophe Response Team
When our industrial, manufacturing, or waste management clients face unexpected environmental or safety emergencies, such as fires, explosions, fatalities or chemical releases, our battle-tested Catastrophe Response attorneys at Seyfarth Shaw can quickly step in to help them deal with the myriad issues these disasters create.
With backgrounds in workplace safety, environmental and toxic tort law, our attorneys have the legal, regulatory and industry know-how to define the scope of the problem and help devise an effective response plan.
Whether or not a catastrophe occurs, our attorneys have a long track record of helping clients with environmental and release reporting, assisting with internal investigations, coordinating employee reviews, retaining industry experts, and incorporating plans and procedures to minimize risks and the threat of litigation.
Our broad-based experience in environmental and safety laws helps us quickly identify key issues and develop practical strategies to resolve them. Likewise, our working relationship with many federal and state regulatory agencies provides us with the practical insights often needed to solve unique client dilemmas, such as those involving release reporting, permit applications, or regulatory ambiguities.
If litigation does arise, many of our environmental and safety attorneys are also seasoned trial lawyers and appellate advocates. With this broad-based skill set, our attorneys can handle any environmental or safety matter from regulatory counseling to enforcement action defense and toxic tort lawsuits.
