Topic focus: climate change and environmental litigation

We note on a relevant page of our website at the Southern California-based law offices of Caufield & James that a fundamental and unwavering goal of our environmental law attorneys is to help our diverse business clients "avoid or minimize potential environmental liability."

When an environmental violation is issued

One of the actions government agencies sometimes take as part of their environmental law enforcement efforts is issuing violations against companies and property owners that they believe failed to comply with environmental laws and regulations they were subject to. Being issued such a violation has the potential to have some very significant consequences for a business or property owner.

New deal reached in BP spill: company pays $18.7 billion

British Petroleum, better known as BP, recently agreed to pay $18.7 billion to settle all civil claims relating to the biggest oil spill in U.S. history. Known as the Deepwater Horizon spill, the disaster was truly incredibly in scope and devastation. In addition to this $18.7 billion, BP has already paid roughly $14 billion to settle a variety of legal claims and issues related to the spill. They have also lost untold billions in revenue as a result of the disaster over the years.
