Environmental risks in real estate and corporate transactions are a concern for property owners, buyers and lenders.  Environmental due diligence is critical to determine the scope of these risks, preserving defenses to liabilities and managing environmental issues.  Our program will address how due diligence can help you and your clients evaluate exposure to statutory liability, complicated regulations, state and federal agency enforcement, and clean-up costs.  Appropriately managed due diligence and risk allocation can help you and your client avoid unhappy surprises after the deal is done.
