Village of Rockton vs. Sonoco Paper Mill


Keller Rohrback L.L.P. represented the Village of Rockton in its efforts to make Sonoco Products Company, a paper and plastics manufacturing company, clean up the toxic mess it left when it abandoned its facility in the heart of the Village. Although the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency concluded that the levels of contamination at the site far exceeded state and federal laws and threatens to spread to other sites in town and pollute the river, Sonoco refused to take any action. That changed, however, when Keller Rohrback began working on the case.

Using the experience and skills of the attorneys at Keller Rohrback L.L.P., the Village took matters into its own hands and commenced legal action against Sonoco to protect the health and well-being of its dynamic community. Keller Rohrback’s efforts paid off. Sonoco has cleaned up the site, and left the Village of Rockton a much safer and better place. Our firm is committed to making places like Rockton clean and healthy places to live and visit.
