Contaminated Real Estate Transactions

At Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC, our environmental transactional attorneys bring decades of combined experience in sorting out and effectively dealing with the complications that contamination presents in a real estate transaction.

Jackson Gilmour & Dobbs, PC identifies environmental risk and adds significant value in corporate and real estate transactions. Because multiple environmental laws and regulations assign environmental liability based on ownership status, businesses must consider environmental risks to effectively value corporate and real estate transactions. We have represented clients, including governmental and institutional landowners, landlords and tenants, operators, and real estate developers in transactions involving potentially contaminated properties.

Our environmental lawyers engage in an extensive business practice advising on the environmental aspects of corporate and real estate transactions. We are knowledgeable in all aspects of environmental due diligence, including evaluating Phase I and Phase II reports, environmental site assessments, agency records, and facility data to identify potential environmental liabilities. When technical investigations are needed, we have existing relationships with and the knowledge to recommend top-quality environmental professionals to assist in developing the scope of investigation and facilitate the client's understanding of the results.

We have extensive experience in negotiating and drafting environmental components of purchase and sale agreements and commercial leases, environmental indemnities, remediation agreements, access agreements, and consulting services contracts to address issues identified during environmental due diligence. We also can assist clients with evaluating environmental insurance products to address unknown environmental risks.
