  • Principal-in-Charge of Underwriting/Loss Control Evaluations for 10 insurance carriers, including the identification of known and unknown pollution conditions, development of significant data gaps, assessment of insurance risks (remediation, bodily injury, or property damage), and how the identified risks impact both the SIR ($50K to $500K) and policy limits ($25MM to $100MM per policy).

Evaluations include various types of sites: UST system spills, manufactured gas plant sites, oil refineries, power plant sites, school construction sites, landfills, and chemical and manufacturing facilities throughout the United States.
