Carl Everett has more than 42 years of experience helping manufacturers, oil and gas companies and many other types of businesses resolve disputes with the government and other parties over environmental remediation of polluted sites. He is deeply involved in cases involving the Superfund, including serving as common counsel to large groups of potentially responsible parties (PRPs) involved in CERCLA remediation projects. He also helps these clients with regulatory compliance and enforcement matters brought under federal and state environmental statutes, and tort litigation. Beyond litigation, Carl counsels clients on environmental permit requirements under state and federal law. And he helps landowners and developers secure liability protections under brownfield programs.
Carl's understanding of the challenges businesses face with environmental compliance also stems from his past role as a senior counsel for E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company.
While Carl was with DuPont, he was involved in appeals of the ozone standard and the Ohio State Implementation Plan for Sulfur Dioxide under the Clean Air Act and in appeals of effluent guidelines for inorganic and pesticide manufacturing facilities and consolidated permit regulations under the Clean Water Act. Carl also participated in chemical industry activities directed toward amendments to the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, and CERCLA. At various times, he provided counsel with respect to air, water, and waste matters at DuPont facilities in the U.S. and Puerto Rico.
