Our attorneys have considerable experience in drafting, interpreting, and litigating contractual provisions concerning indemnities and assumptions of environmental liabilities. That experience is of great practical benefit to our clients who are involved in acquisitions, divestitures, and real estate contract negotiations.
In addition, we manage due diligence investigations in connection with such transactions and prepare clients who are the subject of such investigations. Our firm frequently represents lenders in real estate transactions and assists them in evaluating potential environmental liabilities and risks. We also have been active in the regional development of brownfields and obtaining brownfields funding.
Our engagements in this area have included the following matters:
- Representing a Fortune 500 company in the divestiture of 18 plants in the United States and abroad
- Representing a client in a corporate restructuring of multiple Ohio solid waste facilities, including the transfer and/or assignment of all permits, leases, real estate, and business contracts
- Representing a client in the purchase of a RCRA permitted facility that had corrective action obligations and active citizen group attention
- Representing a client in the development of a biomass fueled power plant – permitting, zoning, transmission, agreements, lobbying, and more
