Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz helped GE respond to EPA allegations about its earlier material sales and demand that GE implement a multimillion-dollar cleanup of a federal Superfund Site. Mintz represented GE at trial and on appeal to the First Circuit and caused a change in the remedy GE was required to implement.

Mintz has represented GE on Superfund and RCRA matters for 20 years.

Case Study
Mintz represents GE in a dispute concerning the EPA’s costly proposed remedy for the Housatonic Rest of River, which offers no additional environmental or human health benefit. The EPA Environmental Appeals Board recently took the usual step of remanding EPA’s proposal for further consideration.
