Assessing damages in environmental and natural resource matters requires advanced techniques not typically encountered in other practice areas, such as the estimation of non-market values. Analysis Group professionals have expertise in using hedonic pricing models, contingent valuation, real-options models, and other quantitative valuation methods to estimate damages.
Analysis of Property Values Amid Allegations of Contamination
Analysis Group was retained by a large utility facing a putative class action brought by private homeowners claiming that discharge from one of our client’s facilities contaminated their properties and caused a reduction in their property values.
Drawing on the resources of our varied practice areas, we assess damages and provide litigation support – including expert testimony and critique of opposing experts’ analyses – in a variety of environmental and natural resources related contexts. We have worked on matters involving air and water pollution stemming from hazardous materials such as PCBs, hydrocarbons or heavy metals, non-pollution land use impacts, toxic torts, Superfund designations, and endangered species and wetland impacts.
