Davis Malm attorneys Michael Malm, John Chambliss, and Dan Janis represented long-standing client Clean Harbors, Inc. (NYSE: CLH) in its recent $85 million acquisition of Thermo Fluids Inc. from Nuverra Environmental Solutions, Inc., a leading provider of full-cycle environmental solutions to the energy end market. With Thermo Fluids’ range of environmental services already in 21 U.S. states, this strategic acquisition aims to expand Clean Harbors’ environmental services customer base and achieve incremental volumes into its hazardous waste disposal facilities. Additionally, Clean Harbors expects to leverage Thermo Fluids’ highly scalable platform of collection facilities, storage capabilities, rail assets and transportation fleet with its existing re-refining infrastructure.

In December 2013, Davis Malm also assisted Clean Harbors with the $60.5 million acquisition of Evergreen Oil, Inc., a California oil re-refinery which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. The transaction was structured such that Safety-Kleen, a Clean Harbors subsidiary, purchased all of Evergreen’s outstanding shares through a bankruptcy plan of reorganization.

Davis Malm has proudly served as Clean Harbors’ counsel since the company’s initial formation in 1980.
