Environmental Litigation




Business operations often involve soil, water and air pollution. These discharges can result in damages leading to government enforcement action or private litigation seeking reparation or compensatory recovery.


The Law Offices of Alwyn H. Luckey handles a wide range of environmental litigation matters at the local, regional and national level. We regularly represent clients in:


  • government enforcement

  • cost recovery actions

  • contribution claims

  • groundwater contamination cases

  • chemical exposure claims

  • mining related claims

  • insurance coverage disputes

  • environmental-related contract disputes

  • mining-related flood litigation

  • agricultural chemical litigation

  • criminal investigations and other complex environmental cases


Our firm is experienced in representing clients in federal and state civil and criminal proceedings, as well as during regulatory agency investigations. The firm handles all aspects of environmental litigation, and we recognize the increasing overlap between regulatory compliance and litigation. 


We are well-versed in environmental laws and regulations, including the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the Clean Water Act (CWA), the Endangered Species Act (ESA), the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), Clean Air Act (CAA), Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA). We also keep abreast of emerging issues and pending legislation.


Every environmental case is different, and we recognize that environmental issues are unique among different industries. Our firm is experienced in the legal and scientific issues that permeate environmental litigation, and our comprehensive knowledge, experience and contact base enables us to achieve optimum results for our clients.
