Seminar Overview: Water pollution litigation is drawn out, and expensive, and potentially high risk for both parties especially where the science is unsettled. But, in many cases, however, it doesn’t have to be that way. Getting the parties to agree on a settlement can be difficult, but it is not impossible. While certainly some cases MUST be tried, the vast majority can and should be resolved without unnecessary time and unreasonable expense. Although the parties can advocate extremely different positions, experienced counsel, often times working with a knowledgeable and experienced mediator, can find mutually agreeable ground and creative solutions.
This webinar will discuss strategies and emerging issues important to litigating these types of cases from both the plaintiff and defense perspectives. It also will address certain ethical issues which attorneys for both plaintiffs and defendants in these water pollution cases may face, and strategies for how to approach them.
