Natural Resource Damages

Our experts have been retained as consulting and testifying experts in numerous natural resource damages (NRD) cases and have extensive experience evaluating NRD claims. We have worked with individual potentially responsible parties (PRPs) and committees of PRPs and bankruptcy estates on cases involving damages to rivers, lakes, groundwater, marine, and estuarine environments. Our work on behalf of defendants includes evaluation of lost human use and recreational service loss claims, critiques of natural resource trustees’ NRD claims, and reviews of costs and scale of restoration alternatives.
