The liabilities associated with soil or groundwater contamination and other environmental problems can be significant.
Ice Miller's environmental lawyers help our clients minimize their risks and liabilities and turn environmental liabilities into opportunities wherever possible.
Property owners often have insurance policies that cover losses stemming from the release of petroleum products, hazardous substances or other toxic chemicals onto their own property or nearby parcels. Ice Miller environmental attorneys have extensive experience helping our clients obtain reimbursement, indemnity and other forms of cost recovery from their own insurance companies and the insurers of third parties responsible for environmental contamination. Coverage for environmental losses is a discrete area of the law, and we have the experience, skill and knowledge to help our clients protect and assert their rights.
Ice Miller has appeared as counsel of record in at least 327 reported opinions in cases involving insurance coverage or insurance related issues and has recovered hundreds of millions on behalf of claimants and policyholders.
