The risk environmental issues present to businesses have expanded considerably in recent decades. Today, managing that risk is an imperative.

DJA lawyers have acted in a range of environmental cases, and in the process developed the experience to guide our clients through a range of environmental issues. We have acted for clients facing environmental charges, and remediation orders under environmental legislation. And our litigators have successfully defended clients in spill response actions and resolved charges under resource-related legislation and wildlife and species at risk legislation.

In particular, our lawyers have considerable experience acting in civil actions involving the remediation of contaminated land, including cost-recovery actions under the Environmental Management Act. Craig Dennis K.C. acted for a federal government agency in a precedent-setting case that was one of the first cost-recovery actions under the province’s former Waste Management Act. And Owen James was successful at trial and on appeal in a nuisance case concerning ambient diesel particulate matter contamination.
