Jennifer has engaged in a wide variety of environmental, energy, toxic tort and product liability matters. Her litigation experience is varied and includes EPA and state agency cost recovery actions; private suits involving CERCLA, RCRA and various state counterpart statutes and common laws; state and federal enforcement actions; NEPA challenges; insurance coverage disputes; toxic tort and product liability actions, including multidistrict litigation; gas storage disputes; and extensive appellate practice. Jennifer has also represented clients participating in government rulemaking processes and rule challenges, including those involving state water quality standards, federal MACT rules, CWA regulations including WOTUS, ESA rules and determinations, and NPL listings. Jennifer has assisted companies across the nation in their environmental investigation and remediation efforts, both those conducted voluntarily through state cleanup programs and those mandated by judicial or administrative order, including the diverse permitting, contracting and regulatory aspects of managing large Superfund sites. She has particular expertise managing the cleanup of properties contaminated by former manufactured gas plants. She has been involved in transfers of contaminated properties as part of deals ranging from small brownfields sites to multi-billion-dollar mergers and acquisitions involving dozens of variously impacted properties, including railroads, dry cleaners, food processing plants, various agricultural operations, waste facilities and gas stations. She has served as environmental counsel on several large development projects involving complex environmental issues arising under the ESA, CAA and CWA. Finally, she regularly assists clients in navigating the myriad environmental laws and regulations encountered in routine operations, including permitting and compliance with the CWA, CAA, RCRA, NEPA, EPCRA, ESA, NHPA, and TSCA.
