Our environmental lawyers work collaboratively with our transactional, corporate, tax and bankruptcy lawyers to address and resolve environmental risks, both known and unknown. We apply knowledge and experience to evaluate environmental liabilities that may be present or arise during acquisition and disposition of properties or businesses, financings or corporate reorganizations. Where appropriate, our attorneys also help our clients find mitigation solutions to offset environmental impacts that may be associated with development activities. Our lawyers have experience in managing and mitigating transactional risks through close collaboration with engineering, environmental, and insurance professionals.
A key aspect of this work is due diligence, compliance and risk management on acquisition or disposal of commercial property interests, companies and/or their assets. Our experience working with transactional clients helps ensure our approach is practical and based on an understanding of environmental management matters. We have experience in due diligence on acquisition, sale, or financing of a wide variety of industrial, commercial and energy facilities and operations. Lenders frequently seek our advice in regards to identification, quantification, and management of potential environmental issues associated with secured lending activities.
