13 August 2019 Waste 360 News
Partner Mark Thimke was quoted in a Waste 360 article, “Legal Considerations Around Brownfield Remediation,” about state rules limiting liability for environmental cleanup projects.

Thimke said Wisconsin has established a brownfield liability exemption to promote redevelopment and address fears of legal consequences over environmental issues for developers and landfill owners who remediate a site in accordance with state law. “It’s the state saying, ‘We are confident about the condition of the site and are willing to take that risk over from the existing owner and developer,’” he said.
