Over the span of our many years of practice, Copeland & Rice lawyers have amassed significant experience representing chemical industry concerns.  In commercial disputes, environmental actions, regulatory proceedings, and cases involving toxic release, we have handled issues as diverse as breach of contract, fraud, negligence, force majeure, environmental contamination, and liability for remediation costs.

Our lawyers’ experience in Chemical industry litigation includes:

  • Obtained the dismissal, after two weeks of trial in federal court, of a real estate broker who handled the sale of an industrial tract on behalf of the seller, a large chemical company, in a case brought by the purchaser against a variety of defendants, alleging fraud and other causes of action and millions of dollars in damages because, following the sale, the property was determined by federal environmental authorities to be contaminated.
  • Represented oil and chemical companies in personal injury suits related to alleged exposure to benzene.
  • Represented a leading chemical manufacturer in several personal injury and products cases, including a case arising from a chemical explosion that was ultimately dismissed after the court granted the manufacturer’s dispositive motion.
