Environmental Insurance Coverage

At Troutman Sanders, we understand that a one-size-fits-all approach to environmental insurance is not always cost-effective for our clients. We regularly review policies on behalf of companies to ensure they are tailored to our clients’ needs.

Our attorneys are experienced in assisting real-estate developers and investor-owned utilities in obtaining coverage for environmental cleanups.

  • Represented clients in disputes with insurers regarding coverage for environmental harm to clients' property and for environmental harm allegedly caused by clients.
  • Represented a client identified as an owner/operator of a site, successfully obtaining coverage for an environmental cleanups and defense costs.
