The Latest on Getting Insurance Coverage for Environmental Claims in Oregon and Washington

Speaking Engagement
Portland, OR

Stoel Rives was pleased to assist with the passage of amendments to the Oregon Environmental Cleanup Assistance Act in 2013, which has clarified the obligations of insurers to pay environmental claims in Oregon and brings Oregon in line with what has been happening in Washington for years under a similar statutory scheme. Over the last year, a number of court decisions have made clear that Oregon means business in enforcing this statute.

Please join our environmental attorneys Joan Snyder, Lou Ferreira, and Kristin Sterling for “The Latest on Getting Insurance Coverage for Environmental Claims in Oregon and Washington,” a refresher on which claims you should be submitting to insurers, how to battle the insurers’ standard denials, and your options for pursuing treble damage claims if the insurers fail to respond.
