Norris McLaughlin & Marcus Presents Seminar on
Licensed Site Remediation Program
Bridgewater, NJ (March 16, 2010) – Norris McLaughlin & Marcus, P.A. will present a breakfast seminar, entitled Beware! The “Other” Side of the LSRP Program, on Thursday, March 25, 2010, from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., at its Bridgewater office.
“The new LSRP (Licensed Site Remediation Professional) program has caused environmental consulting firms to re-evaluate their risk exposure by revising their contracts with their clients and revisiting their professional liability insurance coverage. While those activities are necessary, they are far from sufficient to protect your company from unnecessary liability exposure,” explained Edward Hogan, Co-Chair of the firm’s Environmental Law Group.
Businesses throughout the nation, and particularly in New Jersey, are subject to a web of federal, state and local environmental and safety legislation and regulation that is constantly expanding in scope and complexity. The Environmental Law Group at Norris McLaughlin & Marcus provides a wide range of counseling and litigation services in this challenging area. The firm represents clients in administrative and judicial proceedings before state and federal courts and agencies including NJDEP, EPA, OSHA, the Corps of Engineers and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. The firm’s attorneys also participate in the transfer of property under New Jersey’s Industrial Site Recovery Act ("ISRA"), which may include investigating contamination, working with environmental consultants on a remediation plan, preparing and filing proper ISRA forms, and drafting environmental provisions to be included in agreements and disclosure documents. They also serve as special environmental counsel in multi-million dollar tender offers, mergers and acquisitions, asset transfers and real estate transactions, as well as litigate matters arising out of the generation, storage, discharge or release of hazardous substances, including representation under "CERCLA" or "Superfund."
Other services the Environmental Law Group at Norris McLaughlin & Marcus provide are defending Natural Resource Damage claims, as well as actions filed by adjoining, predecessor, and successor property owners alleging physical injuries, emotional distress or lost property values; resolving matters involving air emissions (particularly volatile organic compounds), waste water discharges, noise pollution, and responses to spill events; providing counseling involving underground storage tank law; obtaining necessary environmental permits and approvals for hazardous waste storage, transportation, and disposal; assisting clients with Brownfields reclamation; assisting lenders in assessing environmental risk associated with certain properties; conducting environmental audits of plants and operations; advising environmental engineers and consultants with regard to their potential liability and representing them in professional malpractice claims; and complying with the reporting and disclosure requirements imposed by OSHA and the Superfund Amendments and Reauthorization Act ("SARA").
