Who Should Pay the Costs of Environmental Cleanup?

Whether you represent the insurer or the insured, the potential costs can run into the millions if your client is found liable. To help you effectively represent your client, this comprehensive, two-volume treatise will walk you through the complexities of environmental insurance coverage. This treatise will provide you with clear and concise analysis of:

•   federal statutes, such as CERCLA, RCRA, NEPA, TSCA, EPCRA, OPCA, the Refuse Act, CWA, CAA, and the state analogs;
•   the particular insurance policies at issue;
•   reinssurance;
•   case preparation and discovery;
•   jurisdiction, venue and choice of law
•   scientific and technical considerations--environmental assessment and remediation techniques; and
•   the implications of climate change for the insurance industry.

Cutting Client Costs--Consider Alternatives to Litigation

Expensive litigation, uncertainty of results, publicity, and lengthy time delays are making alternative dispute resolution (ADR) an increasingly welcomed vehicle for resolving both domestic and international insurance disputes. Mitchell Lathrop provides extensive coverage of the non-litigation avenues available to insurers and insureds alike.

Stay Up-to-Date with the Latest Insurance Topics

With cutting edge coverage of the hottest insurance issues and tools, insightful analysis and straightforward explanations of policy language, you can determine where you and your client stand today and how to improve your client's position tomorrow.
