Environmental issues can present significant risks and complications in real estate transactions. With the right team in place and with guidance from skilled environmental counsel, however, environmental risks do not need to be viewed as a threat to the project.  Rather, environmental challenges can be viewed as an opportunity.  I recently hosted a webinar to present on Environmental Issues in Real Estate Transactions: Ten Critical Concepts and Important Tools to Manage Risk.  If you were unable to attend the webinar, you can listen to the recorded version HERE.  Additionally, below is an infographic outlining the ten concepts and tools discussed during the webinar.

As a Partner in our Real Estate & Environmental Practice, I have the privilege of advising on some of the most complicated, environmentally-challenged Brownfield redevelopment projects. Deals of this nature often require use of all ten tools. Some transactions might only require use of two or three. Regardless of the complexity of your transaction, it is important to have a team in place with practical, working knowledge of these tools so environmental risks are managed, costs are controlled and investments and values are safeguarded.  If you have any questions about the webinar, the infographic or environmental issues you are experiencing, please do not hesitate to contact me.
