Legal Services Related to Petroleum/Petrochemicals

Archer helps clients avoid spills and other environmental contamination problems by ensuring that they understand and comply with environmental safety regulations.  When a leak or spill occurs, it is important to work with experienced environmental lawyers who understand the legal impact of the spill and can help mitigate the impact.

Our environmental attorneys understand the rules related to groundwater and MTBE contamination. We can advise you on private cost recovery and the Defense of Spill Act, as well as other cost recovery claims and NRD assessments.  Our litigation team helps defend personal injury and medical monitoring claims that may arise as a result of a spill. Property damage can also be extensive and costly for your company, but our litigation attorneys can litigate these types of claims as well.

In addition to our established reputation in assisting with petroleum spills, we also assist petroleum companies with labor and employment decisions; worker protection laws; taxation issues and other legal matters that arise out of the operation of your petroleum business. When you work with Archer, you need only turn to one firm to handle all of your legal needs.
