EGC has special expertise with remediation of contaminated properties. We have handled and are handling some of California's most significant development projects and high profile vapor intrusion sites.

We handle cleanups of contaminated sites overseen by U.S. EPA, DTSC, RWQCBs, and local agencies. We are familiar with all aspects of cleanup and work closely with
some of the best environmental consulting firms in the business. We counsel clients
on compliance with cleanup orders; reporting and disclosure obligations that may
apply to the discovery of contaminants in soil, groundwater, oil vapor, and indoor air; potential sources of cost recovery, including possible causes of action against other liable parties, insurance, available state funding, and negotiation tactics to bring other responsible parties to the table.


We have special expertise with pollution legal liability (PLL) policies and work
with carriers to ensure our clients are reimbursed for legal and consulting fees as required by the policy. 


The DTSC, SWRCB, and the San Francisco Bay RWQCB have recently issued
long-awaited new draft guidance for the investigation of vapor intrusion.
This new guidance is expected to have major impacts on properties contaminated with volatile organic compounds.
