Environmental Litigation

Jones Day has one of the most distinguished litigation practices in the world – that expertise includes the ability to handle the most complex and potentially costly environmental cases, including those that address climate change.

Our lawyers, several of whom served as trial lawyers at the U.S. Department of Justice, have extensive litigation and trial experience. Our representations include the defense of criminal and civil investigations and prosecutions in the U.S. and Europe, as well as litigation arising from private citizen suits, natural resource damage claims, Superfund cost recovery claims, public nuisance, class actions, and individual toxic tort claims. These cases routinely involve a wide range of allegations including personal injury and property damage claims alleged to have been caused by a wide variety of contaminants and environmental media. The depth of our lawyers’ knowledge in disciplines such as chemistry, ecological and human risk assessment, hydrogeology, engineering, and epidemiology complements their litigation experience.
