Environmental Litigation & Disputes: Natural Resource Damages

Our experts have extensive experience evaluating natural resource damages (NRD) claims. Our experts have been retained as consulting and testifying experts in NRD cases and we have worked with individual potentially responsible parties (PRPs), committees of PRPs and bankruptcy estates on cases involving damages to rivers, lakes, groundwater, marine and estuarine environments. Our work on behalf of defendants includes:

  • Evaluating lost human use and recreational service loss claims
  • Critiquing natural resource trustees’ NRD claims
  • Reviewing costs and scale of restoration alternatives
