Contamination of a Commercial Property
Our client owns a retail center with many commercial tenants, including a dry cleaner. The dry cleaner’s vendor released a significant quantity of chlorinated dry-cleaning solvent on the client’s premises, contaminating the subsurface soils and groundwater. Remediation was required.
Tort, strict environmental, lender, and insurance liability were triggered and required separate responses and management.
Jordan Ramis was retained to assist in insurance tender and pursuit of appropriate coverage.
Recovery of direct remedial action costs from the tenant, its insurer, and the company responsible for the spill were sought.
Regulatory reporting and response requirements were fulfilled.
The contamination has been contained and cleaned up, costs were recovered, and all requirements were fulfilled.
