Who We Are

It takes confidence for a brand new firm to choose as its very first case a fight against some of the world’s largest oil companies. But that’s exactly what we did in 2003 when we partnered with the state of New Hampshire and, in so doing, settled with numerous defendants for $136 million and obtained an $816 million jury verdict, of which ExxonMobil’s portion was $236 million. We haven’t looked back since.

What We Do

We help our public entity clients solve some of their most challenging contamination problems. Our experience includes helping clients address contamination from methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), 1,2,3-trichloropropane (TCP), dibromochloropropane (DBCP), perchloroethylene (PCE), trichloroethylene (TCE), perchlorate, polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), poly-fluoroalkyl substances PFOS and PFOA (PFAS) and para-chlorobenzenesulfonic acid (pCBSA).

We provide our services on a contingency fee basis, which means that a fee is due to us only when the case achieves a favorable result. In other words, the fee is contingent on success. Usually, the fee is expressed as a percentage of the recovery. This arrangement allows our clients to retain us without any upfront or ongoing fees or litigation costs. Contingency fee arrangements also enable clients with limited financial resources to access our legal services and protect our clients from the financial risks that might discourage them from holding polluters accountable.
