Resolving Superfund Liability and Protecting PRP Interests: Settling and Preserving CERCLA Claims
PRP Intervention Trends and Developments; Best Practices for CERCLA Settlements
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE course will provide counsel advising parties in a contaminated site cleanup with guidance on both protecting the interests of settling potentially responsible parties (PRPs) and, on the other hand, protecting the contribution interests of non-settling PRPs.
- Administrative orders and agreements and consent decrees: settling with the government
- Allocation agreements and cash-outs: private party settlements
- Intervention and other challenges to settlements
- Recent CERCLA decisions involving settlements
- Best practices for protecting client interests
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How can a settling PRP minimize the risk of future claims?
- What can a non-settling party do to mitigate the risk of disproportionate liability?
- Under what circumstances should a PRP seek to participate in a settlement?
- What strategies should PRPs employ to protect their contribution interests in settlements to which they are not a party?
