As a trusted partner in the administration of complex class action litigation, Kroll has the experience and resources to get the job done right. Our team of industry experts provides comprehensive, customized solutions for each environmental and toxic tort settlement.

Environmental Settlements Are Unique

Environmental toxic tort cases have unique factors, risks and challenges, but our in-depth knowledge, proven processes and long history of administering environmental settlements gives us the flexibility to proactively handle any challenge that may arise.

We have the requisite experience to effectively navigate and manage the myriad of issues presented by environmental and property owner class action settlements, which includes working with property owners to manage the lengthy claims process, identifying changes of address, accurately validating documentation regarding property ownership and notifying and distributing property to heirs.

Our Environmental Settlement Administration Experience Speaks Volumes

We have a long-standing record of excellence in environmental class action claims administration. In the Three Mile Island class action settlement, both counsel and the judge commended us for our leadership in managing the notice and administration with compassion and loss evaluation protocol that effectively satisfied everyone involved.

We also handled the administration of the Columbia Gas Explosion litigation, distributing $143 million to approximately 175,000 claimants. Management of the compensation fund required extraordinary diligence and good judgment as residents, property owners and businesses in the Merrimack Valley were eligible to collect payouts ranging anywhere from $50 to $15,000 based on their level of disruption.

Kroll is a distinguished leader in environmental class action claims administration with a full range of in-house services to handle litigation of any size.
