Chemical Cleanup

Quarles & Brady has worked extensively for a client that historically owned paper-making, printing, packaging, and chemical operations through the United States. These assets were divested in the 1980s, and Quarles & Brady has managed retained environmental liabilities for this client on a national basis since then. This work includes some 30 Superfund sites in total, eight of which are active and many of which have required the negotiation of administrative orders and consent decrees, or a response to unilateral administrative orders under Section 106 of the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act. Quarles & Brady has also represented this client in mediation and litigation designed to allocate site costs among the named respondents and other parties thought to have used various disposal sites. This client has sites in Indiana, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Wisconsin.
