RWG's environmental litigation lawyers have achieved favorable results for both public and private sector clients in a variety of complex environmental litigation matters arising under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980 (CERCLA), commonly known as Superfund, the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), the Clean Water Act, the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and other federal, state and common laws. We specialize in prosecution and defense of cost recovery litigation, litigation over contaminated sites and environmental insurance coverage claims.  

We regularly represent clients in defense of claims brought pursuant to the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also known as Proposition 65.

RWG also represents clients in a variety of environmental transactional and compliance matters. This area of practice includes advising clients on due diligence related to real property transactions, indemnity agreements, remediation of contaminated sites, Brownfields projects, reporting obligations, and compliance with permits, such as National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits. We also have considerable experience in representing clients in administrative enforcement matters.
