Kate Campbell is a litigation partner at the firm, where she focuses her practice on environmental, toxic tort and class action litigation and Superfund matters. Since joining the firm in 2003, she has developed considerable experience in representing potentially responsible parties across the country in cost recovery and contribution actions under CERCLA and state law, in defending complex toxic tort claims for personal injury, wrongful death, medical monitoring and property damage, and in litigating federal, state and private enforcement actions under an array of environmental statutes.
In addition to her litigation and Superfund practice, Kate has also been involved for many years in activities involving Total Maximum Daily Loads (“TMDLs”) for toxic pollutants, advocating on behalf of individual clients and a regional coalition of industrial and municipal dischargers. Through this work, she has been able to develop a detailed understanding of the nuances of the Clean Water Act and the TMDL regulatory program, and the contours of TMDL litigation at the federal and state levels.
Kate now serves as the firm's Hiring Partner after chairing its Summer Associate Program for five years. Outside of the office, she teaches Toxic Tort Litigation as an adjunct professor at Drexel University Thomas R. Kline School of Law and is Vice President of the Home & School Board at her children’s school, Ss. Colman-John Neumann School in Bryn Mawr, PA.
