Environmental issues can stop real estate deals dead in their tracks. Spencer Fane works with our clients to keep that from happening. Our lawyers are among the nation’s leaders in finding creative ways to anticipate and solve environmental issues in real estate and business transactions. We work with clients to implement phase I and phase II environmental site assessments, structure brownfields redevelopment projects, prepare environmental investigation and cleanup plans, develop sound contract terms, evaluate insurance and indemnity options, manage risk, and obtain approvals from state and federal agencies. When projects qualify for environmental and economic development incentives, we help our clients obtain those benefits. Spencer Fane lawyers frequently write and speak on environmental issues and brownfields redevelopment topics to regional and national real estate, business, and legal audiences.
