Historical Research and Liability Analysis Services
We offer in-depth historical research, analysis, and interpretation to support a diverse range of historical research projects, including focused, local and regional site histories; corporate and environmental history of industrial facilities; operational and production history of industrial facilities; and all phases of site assessment and cleanup allocation.
The combination of informed research and technical expertise results in a clear presentation of information and defensible recommendations for client teams and collaborating attorneys. Often these materials advance to negotiations with agency representatives and other parties, including participation in formal allocations.
Our team of historians, librarians, chemists and engineers evaluate the history of land ownership; determine past site use; and assess historical operations, waste handling and disposal practices, chemical processes, and fate and transport. Historical research provides strong lines of evidence regarding historical industrial processes, potential sources of contamination, relative contributions, and identification of potential responsible parties at contaminated sites.
