As an expert witness, Mr. Ferguson has prepared reports and given expert testimony in matters related to cost recovery of environmental damages, criminal insurance fraud, due diligence, Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) remediation, professional negligence, and the standard of care at the time the work was performed. Mr. Ferguson has also successfully represented defendants in CERCLA (Superfund) cost allocation negotiations where his report refuted USEPA's additional $10 million in costs for the remediation of 1,4-dioxane.
