Environmental Litigation & Disputes: National Contingency Plan Cost & Consistency Analysis

Entities pursuing or defending cost recovery claims under CERCLA must evaluate whether cost expenditures and remedial actions were performed consistent with the National Contingency Plan (NCP). Our experts have provided cost recovery analysis and testimony for nearly 20 years. Our experts have provided these analyses and testimony at well over one hundred sites, including major National Priority List sites as well as many significant state hazardous waste sites nationwide. Our experience includes:

  • Evaluation of past response costs and their necessity, including the reasonableness of incurred past response costs and adequacy of documentation
  • Analysis and opinions on the reasonableness of incurred past and expected future response costs
  • Evaluation of the consistency of the remedy with the other applicable sections of the NCP
