Marc A. Rollo, partner at Archer & Greiner and Chair of the firm’s Environmental Law Department, joined senior corporate in-house counsel, risk managers, government attorneys, trustees and others who are involved in natural resource damage (NRD) policy assessments and claims at the Law Seminars International’s Eighth Annual Advanced Conference on Thursday, March 14, in Washington, D.C. Rollo co-led a panel discussion titled, “New Jersey: The Once and Future Leader of NRD Programs?”
“There have not been any NRD expert reports submitted in New Jersey in several years,” said Marc A. Rollo, partner at Archer & Greiner and Chair of the firm’s Environmental Law Department. “I am hopeful that the expert reports and positions taken by the NJDEP in this latest wave of cases will be more in line with accepted scientific principles and the federal approach to NRD.”
For the past 20 years, the attorneys in Archer’s Environmental Law group have been at the forefront of complex and emerging NRD issues in New Jersey and have been instrumental in nearly all of the State’s landmark NRD litigation matters. Archer’s involvement is continuing as it is currently defending clients in a few of the more recently-filed NRD cases in New Jersey. In addition to its NRD litigation experience, Archer also has helped clients resolve NRD claims without litigation, including cost-effective strategies that address NRD as part of the regulatory process.
