Preti Flaherty environmental attorneys have extensive experience managing complex claims for natural resource damages across the United States. Our team of attorneys includes a former senior EPA attorney who helped establish the national CERCLA Natural Resource Damage (NRD) enforcement program and several talented environmental litigators, including a former trial counsel for the U.S. DOJ's Environment & Natural Resources Division.

Our attorneys understand the federal and state regulatory processes for natural resource damages and we have long-standing relationships with well-respected technical experts. Our attorneys work with regulators to negotiate and settle natural resource damage claims when appropriate and, when necessary, we have the capability to defend natural resource damage claims of any size and complexity in court.

Our experience and credentials are national in scope, but we also have exceptional depth of experience with natural resource damages in our home region of New England. For example, we are familiar with all of the major NRD settlements involving the natural resource trustees in Maine, and have represented the responsible parties in many of these cases.
