Environmental Law Environmental law is a difficult area of practice because it involves a complex and interlocking body of statutes, regulations and common law. These laws broadly regulate the interaction of people with the rest of the natural world in order to reduce humanity's impact on the environment. This demanding area of the law often requires a mediator to deal with multiple parties, lawyers, government regulatory and enforcement bodies, and insurance carriers at the same time. Indispensable to a successful mediation is a mediator's knowledge of, and litigation experience in, environmental law and an understanding of the business culture in this area. As a Circuit Judges, Jay Daugherty and Robert Schieber tried, conducted settlement negotiations and mediated environmental law cases for over 20 years. John Phillips, as an experienced litigator and mediator, has handled scores of cases in this complex area. Combined they have handled cases ranging from large national multi-party cases, contractual claims, class actions, business to business claims, small commercial cases, cases involving the Department of Natural Resources, regulatory matters involving the Environmental Protection Agency, water and soil contamination cases and many others. Examples include remediation in highway and road construction cases; water contamination in a business to business setting; cleanup operations for industrial sites; and air, water and soil pollution in the context of large animal operations. They have been involved in trials and mediations that combine environmental law elements with common law doctrines that have given them a unique body of information in environmental law, and an even greater understanding of the difficulties in this highly complex area. Jay, Robert and John have the litigation and mediation experiences that have provided them with the knowledge and skill to handle even the most complex environmental law dispute.
