Environmental Due Diligence

Solutions-oriented approaches to client transactions.

Husch Blackwell advises developers, business owners, lenders and business investors on strategies for managing environmental risks that arise in transactional matters across the country. Our attorneys help companies resolve environmental issues surrounding corporate and real estate transactions by performing due-diligence reviews of environmental records, transferring required permits, evaluating liability for pre-existing contamination, and drafting purchase and sale contracts. Our counsel includes strategic planning, due diligence, document drafting and negotiation, development considerations and environmental liability management.

Whether the deal involves brownfields, energy projects, office buildings, retail, self-storage, old or new manufacturing plants, single-site or a multi-state portfolio, our team has extensive experience. Our solutions include drafting tailored environmental representations, warranties, indemnities and covenants to meet the goals of a specific transaction, consultant selection and management, remediation access agreements, advice on insurance to address remediation costs and structuring transactions to minimize environmental liabilities.
