• Opportunity: Our environmental contractor client was hired for a remediation project at an industrial site. As the project neared completion, undisclosed conditions and interference by the owner compromised the cleanup, causing delays and major cost overruns. This led to a disputed shut-down of the project and the owner asserted significant property damages against our client.
  • Solution: After talks among the parties failed, we brought suit on behalf of the client against the site owner and project engineer for concealing the undisclosed conditions. We also prepared to demonstrate claims of defective design, negligence and tortious interference with contract, in order to counter the site owner’s own claimed damages.
  • Result: After conducting intensive discovery and involving experts from multiple fields, we were able to resolve the “bet-the-company” claims against our client in a successful, confidential settlement, avoiding a lengthy, costly trial and returning the client to an excellent economic condition.
