In development projects and transactions, environmental risk must be managed in a thoughtful, knowledgeable and creative way. We guide our clients with technical and legal experience in order to manage risk and help investments succeed.
With an emphasis on project development, and transactional and business counseling, our team helps private developers, industrial manufacturers, municipalities and public authorities, among others, assess and manage environmental risks. As part of this effort, we conduct environmental due diligence, prepare and negotiate environmental provisions and indemnities in transactional documents, help to secure beneficial environmental insurance, and provide related advice to lenders and investors.
We have extensive transactional experience in the development and financing of industrial, commercial and residential projects, and regularly work with industrial development agencies and public entities. We work closely with technical consultants and governmental agencies as we manage federal, state and local environmental impact review, permitting and regulatory compliance, and inform clients of the legal and business implications of sustainability (including climate impacts), resiliency, community dynamics and environmental justice.
Our lawyers are skilled in contaminated site remediation and redevelopment under federal and state Superfund and Brownfield legislation. We also have particular experience in the energy space, ranging from traditional power plant and renewable energy development to building efficiency. We assist clients in analyzing pending legislation and regulations to help them advance the twin goals of environmental protection and economic progress. And should litigation or assistance with governmental investigations become necessary, our environmental, litigation and governmental affairs teams stand ready to provide whatever level of effort is required to further the interests of our clients.
