CONTAMINATED PROPERTY TRANSACTIONS

An increasingly complicated web of environmental laws and regulations has proliferated from all levels of government giving rise to the need for environmental due diligence in a broad array of business transactions.  We assist buyers, sellers, lenders, insureds, lessees and landlords in determining environmental risks associated with transactions and then drafting and negotiating contractual provisions to appropriately allocate the risk and successfully close transactions.

We also have deep experience in both buying and selling suspected or known environmentally impacted real estate (“Brownfields”) while minimizing the risk of our clients.  We know how to structure deals; negotiate cleanup goals, closure criteria and liability protection with state and federal agencies; and customize environmental liability insurance coverage to allow our clients to realize their goals.
