While Knauf Shaw always attempts to resolve our clients’ environmental, land use and insurance disputes without administrative dispute resolution or litigation, should the need arise you can be confident that your interests will be vigorously and competently protected by our firm in litigation. Our attorneys handle all state and federal court civil matters arising under local, state, and federal environmental statutes including New York's Oil Spill Act (Navigation Law Article 12), New York's State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA), the federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) and the federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).

It is not uncommon for disputes over insurance coverage to arise when environmental claims are involved. We regularly handle these insurance issues in conjunction with other litigation. We also handle toxic tort cases involving personal injury resulting from environmental exposure where contamination can be linked to exposure.

Knauf Shaw can successfully take your most complex case from investigation, all the way through a jury verdict. For more information regarding our litigation services, please contact us.
