With the costs of remediating hazardous waste sites soaring into the Billions, effectively advocating on behalf of clients during allocation processes has become a daunting challenge. The enhanced financial stakes, increased incentives to litigate, and the shear magnitude of the effort combine to strain the sanity of both client & counsel. This presentation, provided by highly experienced Superfund counsel who have survived the Superfund allocation gauntlet will provide participants with the perspective and approaches to effectively represent clients and reach equitable settlement through allocation.
