Contaminated Property Transactions

We assist buyers, sellers, lenders, insureds, lessees, and landlords in determining environmental risks associated with transactions, then negotiating contractual provisions to appropriately allocate risk and successfully close 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.

Our deep experience in both buying and selling suspected or known environmentally impacted real estate (“Brownfields”) is essential in minimizing risk for our clients.

We structure deals; negotiate cleanup goals, closure criteria, and liability protection with state and federal agencies; and customize environmental liability insurance coverage to support our clients in realizing their goals.
