Bradley Rochlen is a litigator who designs creative approaches to case strategy in all areas, from one-on-one negotiations and alternative dispute resolution, to courtroom litigation. Merging sound legal theories with in-depth technical understanding, Brad represents corporate, real estate and power generation companies, including public utilities, in complex environmental disputes.
Brad assists clients in prosecuting and defending hazardous waste control (Superfund) cases, RCRA cases and private cost recovery cases at some of the largest contaminated sites in the country. He also has significant experience in resolving Clean Water Act and toxic tort disputes.
Many contaminated sites contain remnants of industrial operations from more than a century ago. Such sites historically contained gas plants, steel plants, coke plants or supported other industrial activities that had their own operational processes and the potential to cause contamination. Brad’s understanding of these operations and their potential impact on real estate and adjacent waterways gives him the ability to provide persuasive and cost-effective solutions to even the most complex legal problems involving the EPA, state and local regulators, or private parties.
