Successful Recovery For Waste Water Plant Against Multinational Chemical Company

A wastewater treatment plant in North Alabama suffered a shutdown and loss of its multi-million dollar investment and ongoing business operations after receiving a mislabeled waste product. A large chemical manufacturer had shipped waste to the plant without disclosing its true contents as a hazardous biological product. We pursued claims in Federal Court against the multinational company. At the same time, we assisted our local client with the regulatory issues. After lengthy litigation, we were able to reach a confidential settlement for our client’s business losses. The case is noteworthy because of the unique business, regulatory, and environmental issues impacting our client and north Alabama.
