As part of his practice, Jim has amassed extensive experience in pollution remediation matters, including compliance with the Industrial Site Recovery Act (“ISRA”).  He has assisted numerous businesses in remediating pollution at their sites, and has coordinated cleanup of abandoned industrial “brownfield” properties, many of which he then helped clients convert to commercial or residential use.
