Webinar regarding Cutting Edge Strategies for Resolving CERCLA Liability

I am pleased to announce that I will be teaching a live CLE Webinar , “Cutting Edge Strategies for Resolving CERCLA Liability” scheduled for Tuesday, May 26 from 1 PM to 2:15 PM Eastern Time. In the webinar, you will learn how to use cutting edge strategies and leverage evolving CERCLA caselaw to best achieve the objectives of your client in pursuing or managing CERCLA liability. You will learn:

  • Tactical and strategic approaches to maximize cost recovery (from a plaintiff perspective) and minimize liability (from a defense perspective)
  • How to protect clients from third party claims following the settlement of a CERCLA case, including an analysis of potential future exposure to cost recovery claims and RCRA citizen suits plus strategies for minimizing those risks
  • Key differences between traditional CERCLA settlements (with a state or the federal government) and private party settlements, including a review of recent appellate decisions on these issues
  • How the timing of a lawsuit or settlement can have dramatic impacts on the rights of the settling and non-settling parties, particularly in light of recent caselaw
  • How recent judicial decisions could affect the standard of judicial review for settlements
  • Strategy considerations for bringing in state or federal regulatory agencies, and
  • Best practices for working with PRP groups
