Environmental Litigation

 

Selendy & Gay is committed to environmental justice and will use our plaintiff and defense side expertise in pursuit of that goal, including by holding to account those who disregard environmental laws or regulations and harm individuals, communities, or property. Environmental disputes extend beyond the courtroom, encompassing a dizzying range of interest groups, local, state, and federal governments, regulators, and the media. We are well-positioned to work with those affected by environmental issues and we have extensive experience representing public entities in pursuing claims against private actors and in partnering with environmentally-minded businesses and interest groups.

Representative environmental engagements include: a dispute seeking remediation of alleged methylmercury pollution; a class action regarding alleged nuclear and solvent contamination; a dispute concerning alleged contamination of a fishery by a fungicide; and litigation concerning a nuclear power plant’s regulatory compliance and state subsidies.
