Environmental Litigation


The outcome of environmental litigation can have a profound effect on a company's competitiveness. When confronted with regulatory enforcement actions and civil litigation brought by state and federal government agencies, Attorneys General, district and city attorneys, and citizens' groups, clients turn to Waller for advice and counsel. Having demonstrated that we are responsive and sensitive to business needs, we find that clients stay engaged with us and refer us to others facing environmental litigation challenges.

Combining the talents and resources of the firm's Environmental and Litigation and Dispute Resolution practices, we advocate vigorously for our clients efficiently and cost-effectively. Our team approach to complex litigation ensures that clients receive skilled development and proficient execution of a case strategy geared to the specific factual, technical, and legal issues presented.  Waller works with clients early on to pinpoint key strategies for achieving success. Throughout the litigation process, we continually re-evaluate those strategies to make certain they remain consistent with client goals and expectations.

Waller has successfully assisted clients on matters under all major federal environmental laws, including the following, as well as many state and local environmental laws throughout the country:

  • Clean Air Act (CAA)
  • Clean Water Act (CWA)
  • Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA)
  • Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA)
  • Superfund Act (CERCLA/SARA)
  • Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA)
  • Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)
  • Coastal Zone Management Act (CZMA)

In addition to representing clients in environmental administrative enforcement actions and civil litigation, our attorneys have extensive experience handling the complex issues that arise in toxic tort litigation, including challenging scientifically unsupported expert witness testimony, and addressing questions of causation and damages.

Extending through Tennessee and the Southeast to California and other regions of the country, Waller's Environmental and Toxic Tort Litigation practice enables clients to stay abreast of developing issues and prepare for—or avoid—further toxic tort litigation.
