Environmental Litigation


Spencer Fane has extensive experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants in Superfund lawsuits seeking to recover cleanup costs. Our attorneys are among the chief advocates of the innovative use of alternative dispute resolution techniques to resolve multi-party issues at Superfund sites in order to save our clients from expensive litigation costs. We have been retained as neutral allocation consultants to help allocate these costs and resolve claims at numerous sites.

The firm also has represented parties in a wide range of common law, statutory, and contractual environmental claims that go far beyond typical Superfund litigation. In our role as trial attorneys and counselors, we represent clients in a variety of complex cases involving commercial land and natural resource development, mining, oil and gas, wildlife, and air, water, and waste environmental issues.

We regularly represent clients on compliance issues with criminal law implications and in defense of environmental crimes charges.
