E-M:/ Who is Grant Trigger, and who does he work for?

Enviro-Mich message from Frank Ambrose <snakeman1549@yahoo.com>

In case you did not know, Grant Trigger works to
represent developers in redeveloping brownfields
without cleaning them up all the way. Below is an
overview of the environmental department of the
lawfirm that he works for (Honigman, Miller, Schwartz
and Cohn, LLP). Below that is a list of clients and
references. Notice that Meijers is one of them. 
You can link to the site at
or www.honigman.com and just search around to see who
they represent and what they do. 

This is just food for thought as people read the
comments and questions coming from this man.

The Environmental Law Department's attorneys have
extensive experience in air quality permit and
compliance matters before local air quality
authorities, the Michigan Department of Environmental
Quality ("MDEQ") and other state environmental
agencies, the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection ("FDEP"), and EPA.
Department attorneys have assisted many clients in
resolving environmental issues raised in connection
with the selection and siting of major industrial and
commercial plants, facilities and developments so that
development, construction, and operation could
proceed. The Department often advises clients on
environmental issues related to the purchase and sale
of real estate and business assets.
Major areas in which the department has extensive
experience include:
-advising operators of hazardous waste treatment,
storage, and disposal facilities ("TSDFs") and
generators, transporters, and recyclers of hazardous
waste on the complex state and federal regulatory
requirements applicable to hazardous waste management;

-negotiating and litigating with insurance companies
to obtain coverage under comprehensive general
liability, property, excess, and umbrella insurance
policies to pay legal, technical and other expenses
for environmental cleanups; 
-assisting clients in obtaining state and federal
licenses and permits and exceptions to permit
requirements related to air quality, water quality,
hazardous waste, solid waste, wetlands, and other
environmental areas; 
-assisting clients in matters involving wetlands
protection, marina development, shorelands
development, and other natural resources protection
-assisting clients in responding to governmental
requests for information related to contaminated
sites, allocating cleanup costs among PRPs, selecting
and implementing appropriate cleanup remedies, and
defending against and pursuing response cost recovery
-handling claims for cleanup cost liability brought
under CERCLA and similar state laws; 
-handling the full spectrum of solid waste regulatory
issues for clients ranging from one of the largest
waste disposal concerns in the world to many single
landfill operators; 
-handling a substantial number of matters involving
compliance with Toxic Substances Control Act ("TSCA")
requirements for PCBs and other chemical substances;
-handling water quality matters involving negotiations
with regulatory authorities on the terms and
conditions of pretreatment, groundwater, and National
Pollutant Discharge Elimination System ("NPDES") 
permits, compliance with such permits, litigation of
administrative and judicial water pollution
enforcement actions, and various other issues; and 
-supporting environmental litigation
