Commercial Transactions and Due Diligence

We have a seasoned team of lawyers who focus on environmental issues in commercial transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, real estate sales and purchases, credit agreement, and portfolio dispositions. 

Under tight deal deadlines, we negotiate environmental representations and warranties, covenants, indemnities and escrow agreements; conduct environmental diligence; and work closely with environmental consultants to assess and quantify environmental liabilities through Phase I and Phase II Environmental Site Assessments and compliance audits. We obtain defenses to environmental liability that are predicated on completing appropriate environmental diligence, transfer environmental permits, and assess and procure environmental insurance policies.
