California businesses are subject to toxic and hazardous waste regulation like few other states, and the attorneys at Somach Simmons & Dunn understand how to help businesses not only survive—but thrive—within these boundaries.

We have helped defend organizations who face large, multi-party CERCLA actions, we have long-been navigating cleanup of Underground Storage Tanks, and we have worked at the forefront of many types of contamination cases.

One of the biggest strengths of our toxics and hazardous waste practice is the ability to anticipate shifts in the environmental contamination landscape. We take a pragmatic approach to understanding what the current areas of focus are for regulating agencies, and we help businesses undertake cost/benefit analyses of which issues are most important to pursue and which should be quickly resolved.

We litigate complicated, contentious environmental lawsuits as aggressively as any law firm, but we work with businesses to understand the toll lengthy litigation will take on a company in a way few other law firms do.  We often recommend practical solutions to avoid the distraction and financial burden that a lawsuit imposes upon a business trying to succeed.
