INDIANAPOLIS, IN — Taft attorneys Frank J. Deveau and David L. Guevara, Ph.D., designed and edited a new book titled Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery. The book was published in May 2012 by ABA Book Publishing and was sponsored by the ABA’s Tort Trial and Insurance Practice Section.
Environmental law and insurance law demand the mastery of an intricately involved set of concepts, definitions, rules, and regulations – all of which are continuously developing. Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery addresses the legal issues at the crossroads of environmental law and insurance law. Specifically, Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery addresses the diverse ways in which a party may be exposed to environmental liability and how insurance coverage may provide financial support for such liability.

For over 30 years he has advised and defended clients in relation to environmental litigation involving private parties, and federal and state government. A substantial amount of his practice has also involved all facets of environmental insurance recovery. Mr. Deveau has been routinely recognized as an Indiana Superlawyer and has been listed in Best Lawyers in America since 1991. He also was recently named Best Lawyers in America’s 2012 Environmental Lawyer of the year for Indianapolis.
