Allison Gabala
Allison’s practice focuses on affirmative and defensive environmental litigation, environmental regulatory matters, and corporate and real estate transactions where potential environmental liabilities may inform contract provisions or insurance policies included in the transaction. She represents clients in Superfund and hazardous waste cases; natural resource damage (NRD) suits; and federal and state cleanup, cost-recovery, and contribution actions, as well as in the federally sponsored allocation processes that determine responsibility and cost accountability in large federal and state regulated environmental/hazardous waste sites. Allison advises companies on compliance with federal, state, and local environmental laws and regulations; management of environmental investigation and remediation at contaminated properties; obtaining and defending licenses, permits, and other approvals from state, regional, and federal regulatory bodies; and obtaining insurance coverage.

Mark Heinzelmann
Mark S. Heinzelmann counsels business clients on regulatory issues, dispute resolution, and federal and state court litigation. Well-versed in the enforcement and regulatory agendas driving the NJDEP from his previous experience as Deputy Attorney General for the State of New Jersey’s Department of Law & Public Safety, Division of Law, and Environmental Enforcement and Cost Recovery department, Mark represents clients in matters involving remediation of contaminated sites, including enforcement actions for alleged violations of such laws as the Spill Compensation and Control Act, Water Pollution Control Act, Underground Storage Tank Act, Industrial Site Recovery Act, Brownfield and Contaminated Site Remediation Act, and Site Remediation Reform Act. He has worked extensively on issues involving the New Jersey Spill Compensation Fund and Hazardous Discharge Site Remediation Fund claims programs, and frequently advises on the legal impact of new hazardous substance remediation standards.

Zachary L. Berliner
Zachary L. Berliner represents companies throughout all stages of environmental litigation under the New Jersey Spill Act, CERCLA, and other state and federal law. He counsels a range of entities, including property owners, nonprofits, and pharmaceutical and chemical companies, on compliance with state and federal environmental laws and regulations; and he guides them on legal issues concerning large, contaminated sites, such as site access, investigation, cleanup, and allocation of related legal and financial responsibility. Leveraging his environmental experience, Zach also performs due diligence in complex corporate and real estate transactions to help both seller-side and buyer-side clients identify and mitigate environmental risks and comply with Industrial Site Recovery Act (ISRA) and other environmental requirements. In addition, he aids companies in internal investigations of sensitive environmental matters, including “emerging” per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS.
