Spencer Fane Project Receives Phoenix Award Recognition

Spencer Fane impacts St. Louis with the Lemay Riverfront Project.

Effective Public and Private Partnership Allows for Expedited Cleanup and Redevelopment of Former Defense Site

A Midwestern city was attempting to redevelop a 3,000 acre site but ran into problems due to environmental contamination. Without cleanup assistance, the project could not move forward.

Effective Public and Private Partnership Speeds Former Defense Site Cleanup and Redevelopment

Spencer Fane environmental lawyers working with an industrial client teamed with a Midwestern city to clean up landfill contamination and promote public use redevelopment. Through Spencer Fane’s insight, regulatory knowledge, development of evidence, advocacy, and persistence, our team persuaded the United States Army to contribute substantially to the project and persuaded the Environmental Protection Agency to adopt the team’s pragmatic cleanup approach. Both significantly reduced the project’s cost. When agencies are not willing to step up to the plate, Spencer Fane is your advocate.
