Environmental Health and Safety Support for Our Partners

Emilcott provides a wide variety of environmental health and safety services to support the efforts of law firms and engineering and environmental consulting firms. Our expertise is highly valued. We are considered experts in many disciplines of EHS and have the broad experience to support professional firms in serving their clients when they may not have their own internal set of skill sets or resources needed for a specific project initiative.  We have developed a reputation to be both technically astute and strategic in identifying and focusing on the most important critical issues facing a client.  We pride ourselves on maintaining the many partnerships we have developed with some of the best legal and technical professional service firms.

For Attorneys

Law firms seek out technical experts that can quickly understand the issues and can provide practical and effective solutions that support the firm's legal efforts. The Emilcott team holds many prerequisite third-party certifications (CIH, CSP, CHMM, and more). We are well versed in the judicial process and understand the role of the technical expert in providing litigation support. We have a track record of successfully providing the legal team with sufficient technical support to win cases and provide favorable outcomes during the settlement process.

Clients have used Emilcott’s technical expert support services for dispute resolutions, arbitration and mediation, administrative hearings, depositions, and trial testimony.  We have provided document review, incident evaluation, forensic analysis, oral and written expert opinion, expert testimony, and the areas of worker and public health. Emilcott can also work with counsel to develop a strategy based on our expert findings.

For Engineering & Environmental Consulting Firms

Emilcott’s roots began by supporting the EHS efforts of engineering and environmental consulting firms. We have become a trusted specialized sub-contractor and partner to many firms that need our expert technical support or require some added resources to help them meet the needs of their clients. Many of our partnerships have lasted over 20 years, which is a testimony to our continued focus on providing excellent support to the needs of these firms.

We have specialized in providing worker and public health and safety services, ranging from basic OSHA compliance to establishing best practices in reducing injuries and illnesses. Our expertise is to provide a clear understanding of the risks associated with a project and develop and implement a practical plan to control these risks so the project can be completed effectively and efficiently.

Emilcott's legal EHS services are offered in the Northeast U.S. in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Massachusetts, and in the Southeast U.S. in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, and Florida. We will also consider additional service areas in the continental United States and Canada if requested.
