The immediate response to an environmental disaster is crucial for ensuring the continued safety of a facility, determining whether to resume operations, responding to media inquiries, and diffusing corporate and shareholder concern. Companies may be facing disputes on multiple fronts: government agencies, employees, contractors, and the surrounding community. In spite of the growing proliferation of these disputes, the private sector remains largely unprepared for catastrophic disasters.
Lauren’s practice focuses on energy, environmental, toxic tort, and complex commercial litigation in state and federal court, including class action and multi-district litigation. Lauren represents energy clients in connection with disputes related to industrial accidents, hydraulic fracturing, disposal and injection wells, chemical exposure, product liability, federal and state environmental statutes, royalty payment practices, and contractual disputes. Lauren also handles a variety of general civil litigation matters involving causes of action for breach of contract, fraud, negligence, nuisance and contractual and common law indemnity.
