About The Program:
Environmental litigation is a highly specialized area of the law, requiring an understanding of geological issues, hydrology, remediation techniques, manufacturing practices, environmental and insurance law, and investigative and litigation strategies. Successful claims often result in significant damages. Our Zoom webinar explores the complexities of environmental litigation and reviews the holdings and impact of recent high-profile cases. Our panel will review government policies related to environmental litigation and discuss strategies for handling claims.
