Barker Rosholt & Simpson, LLP, represents clients in both state and federal courts, and in state and federal administrative proceedings and enforcement actions, concerning Superfund sites, CERCLA, Clean Water Act, Endangered Species Act, and NEPA. We also advise clients on compliance and regulatory issues under these acts, including NPDES,TMDLs, wetlands permits and issues, clean-up obligations and consultations with agencies under these acts. We have defended civil and criminal enforcement actions brought by EPA for alleged violations of the wetlands program. We have represented clients at all of the Idaho's major superfund sites and at many other mining sites in the state that are not listed in the National Priorities List. We have extensive experience in negotiating the terms of judicial and administrative Consent Orders. At the other end of the spectrum, we have helped clients obtain permits from federal and state agencies to engage in their proposed activities and worked to successfully obtain certificates under Section 401 of the Clean Water Act for discharges. We have worked with permittees on federal projects to consult with the Fish and Wildlife Service and NOAA Fisheries to obtain coverage for their activities under the Endangered Species Act.

We have decades of experience in the courtroom and boardroom on issues of insurance coverage for environmental claims, including obtaining defense of environmental claims. We are familiar with the evolution of the insurance policies over time and how to respond to the insurance companies' defenses.
