Foley and Mansfield attorneys have handled and responded to state and federal environmental claims including RCRA and CERCLA, dealing with both state and federal agencies.  

Recently, the Firm represented a tank testing company in a federal court RCRA citizens suit alleging that the testing company’s activities had resulted in a release of fuel oil into the environment. We also recently represented an environmental testing company in a claim that its water sampling had cross contaminated the claimant’s water supply, and we have handled cases involving claims of improper handling / storage of hazardous waste streams.
