Chapter 11 case
Our attorneys served as special environmental counsel for the company. Our attorneys addressed a wide range of environmental issues including (i) the effect on the company's operations of the loss of certification for its required financial assurances and (ii) the resolution of claims related to closure, post closure care and environmental impairment of a hazardous waste landfill. Resolution of the matters included the creation of a trust to which the landfill was transferred and the funding of that trust for a 100-year period. This settlement was instrumental in the company's emergence from bankruptcy.
