In addition to being one of the most experienced "Superfund" lawyers in the United States, he has represented hundreds of parties regarding contaminated property transactions:

• Sales, purchases and other contaminated property transactions;

• Brownfields projects

• Environmental assessments and strategy (all phases);

• Remediations, redevelopment and voluntary clean-up;

• Permitting, regulatory compliance and agency interactions;

• Managing environmental litigation.

Mr. Will and the Firm have handled regulatory matters under all of the federal and state environmental laws and know the regulators well. Mr. Will has been involved in numerous environmental litigation cases and has served as mediator, arbitrator and expert witness in environmental disputes.

Mr. Will has managed Brownfields projects since 1991 and has deep experience in all aspects of Brownfields redevelopment.
