Environmental Regulation for the Retail Industry

Retailers face potential liability for compliance with a variety of environmental and public-notice requirements. For example, product returns can create waste management issues and have resulted in significant fines when rules regarding storage, handling, and disposal were not followed. Labeling and notice requirements such as California's Prop 65 can result in citizen lawsuits and claims against various parties in the supply chain. The construction and development of new facilities also can trigger water, wetlands, contamination, and air requirements and liabilities. Our attorneys are experienced in providing businesses like yours with practical solutions and proactive advice regarding all of these matters.
