In the environmental arena, Mark has represented insurers in national coverage litigation claims brought against them by a policy holder arising from multiple Superfund sites, insurance coverage litigation arising from oil well contamination, and third party litigation claims arising from a Ferric Chloride release at a waste water treatment plant, a second gasoline spill on an already active remediation site, and a perforation of the containment barrier by a remediation company causing further damage .
