Overview

Parker McCay has extensive experience in all areas of environmental law, representing a broad range of clients in connection with environmental litigation, regulatory compliance counseling and transactional matters.  We are well-versed in the interpretation and application of Federal and State environmental statutes and regulations to meet our client’s complex business needs.

The firm has been engaged in numerous environmental litigation matters, including prosecuting and defending municipalities and private parties in cost recovery and contribution actions under the Federal Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act (“CERCLA”) and the New Jersey Spill Compensation and Control Act (“NJ Spill Act”); defending clients against enforcement actions brought by agencies such as the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (“NJDEP”) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“US EPA”) under a wide range of environmental, health and safety statutory and regulatory programs; and representing both insureds and carriers in the context of claims for insurance coverage related to environmental contamination cleanup costs and property damage/bodily injury.

In addition to its strong litigation background and presence, Parker McCay also regularly counsels clients in the complex area of environmental regulatory compliance, including in matters of  air pollution control permitting, water allocation, wastewater management, worker and community right to know requirements, underground storage tank system management, permitting under the New Jersey Pollutant Discharge Elimination System program, solid waste and hazardous waste management, recycling rules, noise control and the Toxic Catastrophe Prevention Act requirements. The firm has also developed specialized skills in handling regulatory issues in the area of contaminated site remediation, including the handling of cases under the New Jersey Industrial Site Recovery Act, counseling clients with matters under NJDEP’s  Site Remediation Program, working with the NJDEP’s Technical Requirements Governing Site Remediation regulations, N.J.A.C. 7:26E-1.1 et seq., and assisting municipalities and private developers with the reuse of Brownfields sites.

Under the broad umbrella of transactional experience, the firm has analyzed and managed environmental risk issues in the context of the purchase and sale of real estate, redevelopment and development projects, complex mergers and acquisitions, and bond transactions. In doing so, Parker McCay has provided environmental advice to many parties, including governmental and private buyers and sellers, lenders and borrowers, trustees, bondholders, municipalities, and governmental improvement and redevelopment authorities. Some of the typical issues covered by the firm’s environmental attorneys during the course of any given transaction are liability for contamination, indemnity arrangements, and disclosure obligations.
